The books Ron mentioned are definitely Richard Matheson, senior. He's alive and well.

His son, Richard Christian, has produced the one novel you mentioned and two short story collections--SCARS, which is a really neat book of short-shorts, and DYSTOPIA, another collecction, which is due out in a month or so from Gaunlet Press. R.C. Matheson has also had a long career writing for t.v. and film; I think he wrote for THE INCREDIBLE HULK, among others.
