Richard Matheson 1926-2013

Many of us in Liquorature have a bit of a soft spot for the more macabre and speculative literary outings on offer.  And of all the twisted individuals lurking among the spectral trees alongside this dark and twisted stretch of highway, one of the most interesting has always been author Richard Matheson.  Richard was responsible for some brilliant novels and countless incredible short stories.  Even those who may not have read his tales, will likely recognize his work from episodes of The Twilight Zone he penned.

I’m sad to say that today Richard Matheson, author of What Dreams May Come, I Am Legend, The Shrinking Man and many more, passed away.  He was 87.

Thanks for all your words, Richard.  Rest in peace.
