What? No Richard Matheson?

"I am Legend," "The (Incredible) Shrinking Man," "A Stir of Echos," "Bid Time Return ("Somewhere in Time")," "What Dreams May Come," and many of the best episodes of "The Twilight Zone" and "Star Trek". As far as I know, Richard Matheson is the ONLY sci-fi writer who so inspired TV and film producers, characters were either named directly after him ("Senator Richard Matheson" on "The X Files," a minor character; and "Rachel Matheson," a major character on "Revolution").
