The Twilight Zone Companion

The Twilight Zone has captivated, teased and haunted the imaginations of countless millions of viewers from its 1959 debut through its 156 subsequent episodes and many years of steady rebroadcast. The Twilight Zone Companion, a 1983 American Book Award nominee, is the complete show-by-show guide to one of television’s all-time greatest series. Zicree’s account of the series from inception to cancellation, through syndication and subsequent offshoots and remakes, is fascinating reading for even the most casual fan. Coverage of each episode includes a plot synopsis, Rod Serling’s narrations, critical commentary, behind-the-scenes stories and anecdotes from the original artists who created the series, a complete list of cast and credits, and over 200 production photographs.

In the Zone: The Twilight World of Rod Serling
by Peter Wolfe

The Twilight Zone explores the possibilities inhering in the ordinary. A Twilight Zone episode can move us by being poignant and intimate, rambunctious or thought provoking. It can also be orchestrated as a set of inter-twined plot developments or as a serial progression. But regardless of whether it takes place on an asteroid, in a city pool room, or in the backwoods, it will usually convey both a folkorist's eye for detail and the born raconteur's sense of pace. Rod Serling, the show's founder, main scriptwriter, and artistic director, knew how much burden he could place on his rhetorical and dramatic gifts. Deservedly celebrated as a pioneer in TV science fiction, he also writes about history and loyalt, the grip of everyday reality, and the dangers of both forgetting about one's ghosts and giving them the upper hand. This book is not a history of the show and its creator (although some interesting background information finds its way into the discussion), but rather a unique look at the detail and the mastery of the episodes themselves.
