The sad news arrived on Monday that one of the true great writers of our age has passed. Richard Matheson, passed away in his family home on Sunday night. His daughter Ali wrote the following:
"My beloved father passed away yesterday at home surrounded by the people and things he loved...he was funny, brilliant, loving, generous, kind, creative, and the most wonderful father ever...I miss you and love you forever Pop and I know you are now happy and healthy in a beautiful place full of love and joy you always knew was there..."
Matheson was a true legend of the written of word and his books and short stories leaped off the page into our televisions and onto the big screen.
We here at Mania mourn the loss of a man who inspired us in so many ways. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
