A Good Day for Richard Matheson: A New Musical & Century-Spanning Award

Take that, sparkling vampires! The Richard Matheson classic, I Am Legend has been named the Vampire Novel of the Century by the 2011 Bram Stoker Awards. The classic 1954 novel tells the story of a vampire pandemic which sweeps the world, leaving very few survivors. It has been adapted into a film three times: The Last Man on Earth (1964), The Omega Man (1971), and the correctly titled I Am Legend (2007).

In other Matheson news; his famous novel Bid Time Return (later retitled Somewhere in Time, read the bizarre story behind it here) is being adapted into a new musical. Details on the release of the musical can be found here.
