    About " Richard Matheson "

  • Richard Matheson

    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

  • El primer libro que leo de Matheson y fue s lo meh Las primeras historias me gustaron por como combina la ciencia ficci n con terror , pero luego esa f rmula se vuelve muy repetitiva Me cost mucho terminarlo.


  • Matheson is a solid short story writer No shock he s go on to write a bunch of Twilight Zone episodes This is a nice sample of his early work Nothing Earth shattering No stories that should go down in stone to be remembered for all time But it s a good collection Several stories, like so many of 50s, deal with the disillusionment with societal expectations, particularly in relation to being a writer.


  • Overall the anthology is not an example of Matheson s finest writing but most are enjoyable to read with many of them featuring a writer as the main character, and usually he s not having a very good time Two of the stories are standouts 1 Born of Man and Woman Seemed to me like a Frankenstein sketch from the monster s point of view Short but effectively creepy thanks to Matheson s uncanny command of economy of words 2 Third from the Sun One of the least interesting in the anthology Of course it [...]


  • An engaging, eclectic collection of short stories The first two selections, Born of Woman and Third From the Sun, are pretty weak, but that s easily excusable seeing as how they were written at the very beginning of Matheson s career before he hit his stride The key to what makes Matheson s stories so special is his amazing ability to produce wonderful material using plot lines that even the most talented authors at the top of their game wouldn t have a clue how to make work And he accomplishes [...]


  • Sin duda alguna Richard Matheson es un maestro con los relatos cortos, en pocas p ginas es capaz de plasmar todo un libro entero, haciendo la historia interesante, destila ficci n por todos lados, algunas de ellas c micas otras terror ficas, te hacen reflexionar en la humanidad y en cada uno de sus detalles, haci ndote dudar de tu propia realidad.La tensi n es palpable en cada uno de los cuentos, te sumerges de inmediato y te sientes dentro de la historia bailando con los personajes Lo interesan [...]


  • Genialissimo inventore di incubi dominati dalla costante comune della paranoia , lo ha definito la nostra recente ENCICLOPEDIA DELLA FS, e nel corso di una carriera narrativa che ormai dura quasi da quarant anni Richard Matheson non ha mai deluso In questa sua prima raccolta che ospita tredici piccoli gioielli apparsi in origine fra il 1950 e il 1954, accanto al celebre e agghiacciante racconto dell esordio Nato da uomo e donna e a inediti non meno illustri, figurano alcune famose e ormai introv [...]


  • Questa raccolta di racconti merita proprio Amo le raccolte perch puoi leggere un racconto ogni tanto quando vuoi, e non hai l angoscia di aver perso il filo del racconto Cinque stelline con lode Non capisco perch si continua a pensare agli scrittori di fantascienza come figli di un dio minore della letteratura Matheson un grande, morto l anno scorso a luglio, se ne parlato poco o nulla Eppure dovrebbe essere pi conosciuto perch oltre che dai suoi libri e racconti famosi tra gli amanti del genere [...]

  • Tegu on pehmekaanelise valikuga mehe esikkogust Born of Man and Woman Enamus tekste liigub sel h maral alal, kus kohtuvad SFFH Praktiliselt k igil on leidlik idee ja l v l pp, kirjanduslik pool veab teinekord pisut alt Igale jutule maksimumhinnet ei paneks, aga see on just selline jutukogu, kus tervik on suurem, kui selle osad.


  • Richard Matheson wrotes some of the very best creepy and psycho social science fiction from the pulp era I am Legend was a great novel, but his short stories show the depth and breadth of his imagination and story telling.


  • My favorite of Kurt Vonnegut s alter egos is Kilgore Trout, the cheeseball sci fi writer who is accidentally brilliant Kilgore would have written this book, and I loved it It is Asimov with a Parmesan sprinkle.



  • Among the best of its kind terrific stories that take chances and surprise and create whole worlds in just a few pages.
