"Crap! I wish I hadn't seen Ricky on the sidewalk."

"You will be fine for 31 minutes. You will be dead in 32 minutes."

Richard Matheson died the other day, which is a shame 'cause I would've happily scanned some classic Matheson covers. It's all gone--boxed up, stacked, stored--but my memories of Matheson and his work on The Twilight Zone are intact.

What puts the dink in co-inky-dink is that I tripped over this chestnut as I was boxing compact discs. I guess the presence of Chuck Heston makes it more of a "gun nut" than a chestnut.

The Omega Man  movie tie-in (I Am Legend by Richard Matheson)
What's even crazier is that folded up inside the book was a complimentary article about my bookstore from 1998.

The article is very nice and all, but I'm having trouble placing the shirt I'm wearing. Totally familiar but completely foreign. A real puzzler.

Maybe it'll come to me in a dream.
