In reply to comment: What? No Richard Matheson? (see in situ)

matheson was great

I AM LEGEND was filmed as OMEGA MAN starring charlton heston & earlier as THE LAST MAN ON EARTH starring vincent price.

RM was also an influence on another great speculative writer: j.g. ballard

THE PRiSONER of course is a libertarian classic, and the new version (more ballardian) is also
quite good.

a leftie friend of mine refused to admit that the prisoner theme was libertarian, but he also was in denial
about the creators of south park. funny, when liberals discover something or someone is actually inspired by libertarian thinking they suddenly lose interest, even though previously they loved it.
