9781550227444: Dimensions Behind the Twilight Zone: A Backstage Tribute to Television's Groundbreaking Series

?In the chronicles of television’s history, Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone is considered by far the medium’s quintessential creation. The CBS series that debuted in 1959 and aired for 156 episodes offered black-and-white morality plays both terrifying and poignant. Each week the ominous voice and brilliant mind of writer Serling took audiences on a trip through his surrealist realm of fantasy and science fiction, beyond the boundaries of imagination. Dimensions Behind the Twilight Zone is a visually stunning backstage glimpse through time and space, into the history and making of the Twilight Zone. Author Stewart T. Stanyard, creator of The Twilight Zone Archives online, invites readers to explore a portion of the archives collection: over 300 original behind-the-scenes production stills taken during the filming of the show. Accompanied by insightful captions, the book includes rare documents and interviews with 40 producers, directors, writers, and actors who worked on the series, such as Dennis Weaver, Bill Murray, Shelly Berman, Earl Holliman, and Earl Hamner, Jr. The book also features candid interviews with Serling’s wife Carol, brother and writer Robert, and Serling’s influential teacher Helen Foley. Aside from five informative and analytical chapters by the author, it features tribute essays by several Hollywood personalities, including Rush drummer Neil Peart, Simpsons producer Dana Gould, and Star Trek: Next Generation writer Robert Hewitt Wolfe.

From the Back Cover:

Looking through these behind-the-scenes photos brings back many fond memories of Rod Serling and those early days working on such a remarkable piece of television history. -- William Shatner ("Nick of Time," "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet")

Stanyard's book is an amazing, insightful journey into the creation of what is perhaps the best show ever on television. Brimming with behind-the-scenes anecdotes and rare photos, Dimensions Behind The Twilight Zone is an absolute must-have for any fan of Serling's. I loved it! -- J.J. Abrams (Creator of Lost, Alias, and Felicity)

A worthy addition to Twilight Zone lore. The arrival of this treasure trove of "lost" photographs and interviews with the Zone inhabitants is therefore a stupendous event. -- Carol Serling, wife of Rod Serling

"It appears Stewart Stanyard has done his homework. I think my old friend Rod and so many of his actors (now in their own "Twilight Zone") will be happy and relieved. Stewart has `got it right.' -- Cliff Robertson ("A Hundred Yards over the Rim," "The Dummy")

Dimensions Behind the Twilight Zone is an amazing in-depth look into the most unique and arguably best television series ever made and the visionary who created and guided it. Stewart Stanyard has pulled out all the stops here. Packed with an abundance of rare behind-the-scenes photographs and fresh interviews with those who were there, it brings insights to the myth of Rod Serling. This is a good book, a real good book. Read it, or I'll send you to the cornfield! -- Bill Mumy ("Long Distance Call," "It's a Good Life," "In Praise of Pip")

Dimensions Behind the Twilight Zone is a keen look into the making of a classic television series by people who were there. Stanyard asks the right questions and gets insightful answers from a fantastic array of superbly talented people -- the photos are priceless. I give high praise to ECW Press for choosing to publish this important book. -- George Clayton Johnson (Twilight Zone core writer)

Stewart Stanyard's marvelous book Dimensions Behind the Twilight Zone provides a terrific look behind the scenes of one of the greatest TV shows ever made, chock-full of previously unpublished on-set photos and personal reminiscences of those who made the show a classic. If my book is the Companion to the Twilight Zone, then Stewart's is the ideal companion to the Companion. -- Marc Scott Zicree, author, The Twilight Zone Companion
