I was a late-comer to Richard Matheson’s work. Sadly, I am one of ‘those’ people who chooses a book by its cover. And “I Am Legend” didn’t have a cover that moved me. It wasn’t until years later when they were making (another) movie about his book, that I decided to pick it up. I am so glad I did. You see, I’ve been a fan of the undead from way back. I was loving on the vampires and zombies well before it was the cool or trendy thing to do. Decades before they were relegated to teen romance.
