    About “Richard Matheson Simon Fraser

    1. Richard Matheson Simon Fraser says:

      Born in Allendale, New Jersey to Norwegian immigrant parents, Matheson was raised in Brooklyn and graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School in 1943 He then entered the military and spent World War II as an infantry soldier In 1949 he earned his bachelor s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri and moved to California in 1951 He married in 1952 and has four children, three of whom Chris, Richard Christian, and Ali Matheson are writers of fiction and screenplays.His first short story, Born of Man and Woman, appeared in the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in 1950 The tale of a monstrous child chained in its parents cellar, it was told in the first person as the creature s diary in poignantly non idiomatic English and immediately made Matheson famous Between 1950 and 1971, Matheson produced dozens of stories, frequently blending elements of the science fiction, horror and fantasy genres.Several of his stories, like Third from the Sun 1950 , Deadline 1959 and Button, Button 1970 are simple sketches with twist endings others, like Trespass 1953 , Being 1954 and Mute 1962 explore their characters dilemmas over twenty or thirty pages Some tales, such as The Funeral 1955 and The Doll that Does Everything 1954 incorporate zany satirical humour at the expense of genre clich s, and are written in an hysterically overblown prose very different from Matheson s usual pared down style Others, like The Test 1954 and Steel 1956 , portray the moral and physical struggles of ordinary people, rather than the then nearly ubiquitous scientists and superheroes, in situations which are at once futuristic and everyday Still others, such as Mad House 1953 , The Curious Child 1954 and perhaps most famously, Duel 1971 are tales of paranoia, in which the everyday environment of the present day becomes inexplicably alien or threatening.He wrote a number of episodes for the American TV series The Twilight Zone, including Steel, mentioned above and the famous Nightmare at 20,000 Feet adapted the works of Edgar Allan Poe for Roger Corman and Dennis Wheatley s The Devil Rides Out for Hammer Films and scripted Steven Spielberg s first feature, the TV movie Duel, from his own short story He also contributed a number of scripts to the Warner Brothers western series The Lawman between 1958 and 1962 In 1973, Matheson earned an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for his teleplay for The Night Stalker, one of two TV movies written by Matheson that preceded the series Kolchak The Night Stalker Matheson also wrote the screenplay for Fanatic US title Die Die My Darling starring Talullah Bankhead and Stefanie Powers.Novels include The Shrinking Man filmed as The Incredible Shrinking Man, again from Matheson s own screenplay , and a science fiction vampire novel, I Am Legend, which has been filmed three times under the titles The Omega Man and The Last Man on Earth and once under the original title Other Matheson novels turned into notable films include What Dreams May Come, Stir of Echoes, Bid Time Return as Somewhere in Time , and Hell House as The Legend of Hell House and the aforementioned Duel, the last three adapted and scripted by Matheson himself Three of his short stories were filmed together as Trilogy of Terror, including Prey with its famous Zuni warrior doll.In 1960, Matheson published The Beardless Warriors, a nonfantastic, autobiographical novel about teenage American soldiers in World War II.He died at his home on June 23, 2013, at the age of 87uscmillan author richar

    1. This book did do it for me ,I like Richard Matheson but their was no atmosphere, the characters are ordinary I didn't care what was happening to them. the art is great for the kind of story. It's hard not to think of the similarities with The shining .Something was lacking for me.

    2. Stephen King says that this author influenced his horror writing, and I can tell. Shades of The Shining! The last 60 pages or so made me feel very scared and insecure. Good as a retro read.

    3. To clarify, this is a Graphic Novel, not a book. Also, it has a different cover. It was adapted by Ian Edginton and illustrated by Simon Fraser. A great team for this project.You've never experienced a story until you see it in pictures. It may look different than you would visualize it, but so what. They did a wonderful job on Hell House. I have already read it twice and I just got it the other day.Highest recommendation.

    4. HOLLY SH&T IN A F#CK%NG SANDWICH!!!Este libro es puro y brutal horror.Sólo alguien como Matheson puede escribir tantos horrores y bestialidades sin perder el estilo. Una historia que te toma por los cabellos, te pone de rodillas y no te suelta hasta que pides clemencia y lloras por tu madre.¡¡¡Brutal, Brutal!!!

    5. this was an interesting book. it had its ups and downs, but I must say, it was a great book. I was not expecting the ending it had, really caught me off guard. it was a bit lengthy, but was worth it. interesting plot, it wasn't as scary as I expected, but some parts were a bit frightening. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good paranormal book.

    6. I'm glad I read the novel before this comic. It's a decent comic, but it finished just too soon. Seemed a little rushed at the end, when we found out the "truth" behind the hauntings. Decent read, so I'll give it 3 stars.

    7. I love this genre and the story kept me entertained throughout. I also like the art style; classic comic book feel to me. If you like ghost, paranormal, occult, etc. I would recommend this book. A nicely contained story.

    8. Good adaptation of one of my absolute favorite horror stories of all time. The only reason I didn't give five stars is I think the black and white art is rather muddy.

    9. Definitely creepy, I'll give it that. But I was such a fan of I Am Legend that this one let me down. Between the two, I'd recommend I Am Legend.

    10. This is such a good book! I can't believe that they have not remade the movie into something more fitting. great story telling and ending
