9780380896011: Twilight Zone: The Original Stories

For five seasons, in episode after episode, The Twilight Zone showcased the very best in fantasy and suspense, keeping television viewers on the edge of their seats with its powerful combination of strong story line and direction. The series creator and inimitable master of ceremonies, Rod Serling, was honored by many a copycat, but no show since has surpassed its captivating appeal. This volume contains the original stories that inspired some of the most celebrated episodes. Inventive tales by such masters as Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont, Ray Bradbury, Damon Knight, and others provide thrills, terror, wonder, and great fun in 560 chilling pages.

Review:

Although Rod Serling, who created the classic television series that ran from 1959 to 1965, is the writer most associated with The Twilight Zone, he was not, of course, the only one. Serling was a serious admirer of horror, fantasy, and science fiction, and he scoured every magazine and collection available to find stories suitable for his series. This anthology showcases almost every original story that had been adapted into an episode. The result is a masterful collection of 30 classic tales by Richard Matheson (who also wrote the warmly nostalgic introduction), Charles Beaumont, Ray Bradbury, Damon Knight, Lewis Padgett, Jerome Bixby, and Manly Wade Wellman, among others. Fans of The Twilight Zone will enjoy revisiting their favorite episodes in literary form, but even if you've never seen the show, you'll enjoy this fine anthology. --Stanley Wiater
