    Read it many years ago. I believe it was the basis for the Charlton Heston film "Omega Man". You're right, great book.

    I really liked I Am Legend, very entertaining. I'm not a big fan of Richard Matheson's other books though.

    The Omega Man was a pretty good adaptation, it made me want to wear a gun belt with a tracksuit.

    Another film adaptation was "The Last Man on Earth" with Vincent Price. Good book.

    Personally the movie made me want to put on a crushed velvet smoking jacket, cravat and get a BAR with an IR scope to finish of the ensemble. Of course this is acceptable attire at only the classiest of ranges.;a

    Good old Charlton Heston, driving around a deserted city in a huge convertible, chillin' out.

    I will have to check out that book. ;?

    Hey can you imagine what Yul(The Pharoh)Brenner would have done if Chuck had showed up looking like that? That includes the BAR. "Pharoh let my people go!"

    Okay Moses take them.

    Chuck is the man. ;z
