A Legend in Science Fiction

VJ Books Author Spotlight

Richard Matheson

When Richard Matheson died early last summer he left a void in the sci-fi and horror genre that will not likely ever be filled. His groundbreaking novels, short stories, screenplays and teleplays were the blueprints for numerous movies and television shows.

Mr. Matheson was the master of “what if?” and his imagination knew no boundaries. Many of his stories found their origins in actual events. One of his most popular stories came from personal experience when he was tailgated by a truck driver. What emerged was the short story “Duel,” about a motorist who is relentlessly stalked in a highway chase by a tractor-trailer, its driver never seen.

The story became the basis for Steven Spielberg’s first feature film, starring Dennis Weaver.

One of the most applauded STAR TREK stories, episode five –THE ENEMY WITHIN came from Matheson, and more recently Will Smith starred in I AM LEGEND based on Matheson’s novel of the same name.

Matheson received the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement in 1984 and the Bram Stoker Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Horror Writers Association in 1991. The Science Fiction Hall of Fame inducted him in 2010.

Matheson died just days before he was due to receive the Visionary award at the 39th Saturn Awards ceremony. Academy President Robert Holguin said "Richard’s accomplishments will live on forever in the imaginations of everyone who read or saw his inspired and inimitable work."

VJ Books has made special arrangements with one of Matheson’s publishers, and are pleased to offer some the author’s best work. Many of these are signed, and we are pleased to be able to make them available this last time.

This offer will close in two weeks.
