“I Am Legend” by Richard Matheson…

Robert Matheson’s “I Am Legend”

With the movie dropping tomorrow, I thought I drop a post about the origin of the story, Richard Matheson’s novel I Am Legend – published in 1954.  I’ve been amped up to see this movie for multiple reasons; I love vampire/zombie movies, I love New York City, and I love end of the world scenarios as well as different authors and directors take on all of the above.  Apparently its a riveting read and I intend to grab a copy ASAP.  Also researching this I learned that this book has had two film adaptations, I Am The Last Man On Earth as well as The Omega Man starring Charlton Heston.  From the hype it looks like both the movie and the book deliver so check’em out.
