The Top 20 Greatest Horror Writers of All-time (Article) - 2/21/2009 10:13:29 AM

Worth a mention: Matheson is one of my favorite writers, but he didn't write the Kolchak novels.  That honor goes to Jeff Rice, a reporter turned novelist, who pretty much got rolled over on credit (and income) for creating Carl Kolchak.

The novel -- called The Kolchak Papers -- was unpublished, but sold as property to be made into a TV movie.  Matheson wrote the teleplay and it's sequel (very well, I might add!), but Rice deserves credit for the novel.
