I Am Legend was written in the 70s I think. I'm currently reading it. It should take me one more day at most to finish. I think its great and it's not hard sci-fi at all.

Then again maybe some people don't include post-apoc in sci-fi, but I do.

I do have a little bit of me that wants some hard sci-fi, but I will always enjoy character-driven pieces more.
I am Legend dates to the 50's. It has been made into a movie at least three times, once featuring Vincent Price as the Last Man on Earth, Charlton Heston in "The Omega Man", and of course most recently with Will Smith in "I am Legend".
