Here’s an interesting interview with Richard Christian Matheson that was conducted last year. R.C. is Richard Matheson’s son, and a helluva writer in his own right. He works primarily in television and movies, though he has one novel and couple of short story collections to his name.
R.C.’s specialty is short-shorts, one of which in particular has stuck with me. Track down his story “Red” if you can find it. I read it three times before it dawned on me what the story was really about. On my fourth read through I realized it’s a nasty conte cruel, one of the most horrific stories I’ve ever come across.
