Tor Books is publishing a new edition of I am Legend: the tale of Robert Neville, the last man on earth... who comes to find out he is not alone. First published in 1954, I am Legend has been turned by Warner Brothers into a motion picture starring Will Smith. Directed by Francis Lawrence, the film opens in the US on December 14th, 2007.

Adapted by Mark Protosevich and Academy Akiva Goldsman, the movie brings to life the story of Robert Neville, the last survivor of the unstoppable, incurable and man-made virus that has wiped out humanity. But he is not alone.

Richard Matheson is the author of I Am Legend, Hell House, Somewhere in Time, The Incredible Shrinking Man, A Stir of Echoes, and What Dreams May Come.

A Grand Master of Horror and past winner of the Bram Stoker Award for Lifetime Achievement, he has also won the Edgar, the Hugo, the Spur, and the Writer's Guild awards. He currently lives in Calabasas, California.
