Read an Excerpt
"Admittedly, the basic idea of a pilot getting lost and touching down on an unfamiliar air force base in not that extraordinary a concept. Until you consider the pilot is from World War I and he's landed at a contemporary Strategic Air Command base!
"His first script for the series which Matheson believes is the first script he wrote for any television series was pitched to the producers in very much this simple and direct manner.
"'I went in one day and producer Buck Houghton was there, and Del Reisman, the story editor, was there. All I remember is that I only had to utter one sentence, which was: 'A World War I pilot gets lost and lands at a modern SAC base'. And that was all they had to hear. They gave me my first assignment."

What People are Saying About This
Matheson is and always has been a writer's writer. His influence, a singularly compelling voice that runs through the contemporary history of science fiction, terror and horror literature, is better left for assessment by scholars and critics... He is the very best of the best, and archetype of what a career is supposed to be all about".
(Dennis Etchison, author of Double Edge)
Matheson's skill in creating empathy lends special strength to his work... The secret weapon he employs is his own sensitivity to the fears and innermost imaginings which are common to us all.
(Robert Bloch, author of Psycho)
