I AM LEGEND [collection]
I am Legend, by Richard Matheson: a collection of the title novel plus 10 additional stories or novelets, selected from five earlier collections. Those collections are long out-of-print; this is a good way to sample his short fiction. I am Legend - the story about Richard Neville, last survivor of a plague that swept the world and turned people into white-faced, glassy-eyed sleepwalkers unable to die - is also the basis for 3 movies: THE LAST MAN ON EARTH (1964), and THE OMEGA MAN (1971), and the recent one starring Will Smith: I AM LEGEND (2007.)
I am Legend "Buried Talents"
The title novel is copyright 1954; the stories were originally from Fantastic, Startling Stories, Magazine of F&SF, Playboy, Twilight Zone, Star Science Fiction No. 3, and Masques II, from 1951 to 1989.
