The writer behind stories like I Am Legend and countless Twilight Zone episodes has passed on at the age of 87. His list of novels and short stories is enormous and has influenced modern day writers like Stephen King and George A. Romero. Most will remember him from his iconic stories from The Twilight Zone which include Nightmare at 20,000 Feet (there's a gremlin on the wing!) and Button, Button (push a button, you get money, someone dies). His stories and tales quickly became ingrained within American culture to the point where more people contact his ideas through mockery and not the original. Do yourself a favor and look up some of Matheson's work to honor the passing of a great writer.
