Read The Book Before The Flick

I Am Legend

Before checking out the movie - which I pray Hollywood & Will Smith didn't butcher - I highly recommend everyone pick up the book Richard Matheson wrote over 50 years ago.

I Am Legend is only 160 pages and reads about as quick as anything you can find. It is one of the science-fiction stories which forever changed the landscape for writers who came after.

There's a reason why Steven King said Matheson influenced him the most as a writer. Matheson was King before King was Bachman. Make sense?
