Another of the genre’s grand old men has gone. Richard Matheson died in Los Angeles on 23 June. As our entry says, he was a master of artfully evoked Paranoia – the most famous examples being his novels I Am Legend (1954) and The Shrinking Man (1956) along with their various film incarnations, especially The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957), which was scripted by Matheson himself and won him a Hugo. Several of his fourteen scripts for the first series of The Twilight Zone are also vividly remembered.
