The Last Dead Man On Earth Just Woke Up…

A loving tribute to the author by an actor who adored him, this rendition of Ray Bradbury’s 1948 novella Pillar Of Fire is 50 minutes of pure prose magic from the Master Of Imagination.

In 2349, the world has been cleansed of superstition. It is the age of the clean mind and the clean death. But in a windswept graveyard, a 400 year-old corpse awakens! William Lantry is the last dead man on Earth. And he intends to re-educate the world on the meaning of fear…

Bill Oberst Jr. is an East Coast stage vet (JFK, Jesus Of Nazareth) a Daytime Emmy winner (Take This Lollipop) and a still at-large TV serial killer (CBS’s Criminal Minds.)
