    D: A true giant in the sci-fi/fantasy realm. He will be greatly missed.

    Why pick the banner pic from a movie that RUINED the entire point of his story?

    I didn`t know he wrote for the show Combat! I just started watching that series last week as a matter of fact. I loved all of his work though, definitely going to miss him.

    "I didn`t know he wrote for the show Combat!"

    He wrote an episode called "Forgotten Front" about a nazi deserter.

    Read & watched most of it. Such a great imagination. My brother & I used to watch Combat reruns in the early 70`s--we bonded over that damn show! My nephew is now ransacking my books & movies, so Mr. Matheson will (hopefully) be remembered for a long time to come.

    He peaked early with his one and only Star Trek episode "Enemy Within" in 1966.
