Rod Serling's talents for writing and producing, and his incomparable voice, made him one of the most popular and best-known figures in television in the 1950s and 1960s. He helped introduce TV audiences to a wide range of new and controversial issues such as racism, sexism, and anti-war politics.  Even today he is still widely imitated.

Kirja-arvosteluja

Rod Serling excelled as a dramatist rather than as a prose writer (amply attested by his Twilight Zone short story collections), but this little book is still a worthwhile souvenir for fans of Night Gallery, Serling's second network TV series in the psychological horror/dark fantasy/sci-fi mold. It contains adaptations of five teleplays that he authored for the show's first season (including Emmy-nominated "They're Tearing Down Tim Riley's Bar"), and one story which was never dramatized. The standout is "The Sole Survivor," which manages to recreate some of the cold, doomy atmosphere of the Night Gallery segment "Lone Survivor" (about a lifeboat passenger with a ghastly tale to tell, and an even more horrible warning to issue). In "Does the Name Grimsby Do Anything to You?", the aforementioned undramatized story, the first man to reach the Moon is haunted by the suspicion that he was not the first.… (lisätietoja)

This is a collection of science fiction stories based on scripts by The Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling. Each story runs for about 40 minutes and is presented in the style of old radio shows complete with full cast readings, music, and occasional other sound effects.

Not really having watched much of The Twilight Zone myself, I'm not sure if all of these were actually television episodes (or how closely they resemble what aired if they were, but I can say they all work well as radio show episodes. The full cast includes some prolific character actors and occasional well-known names like Richard Kind.

This volume includes the following stories:

- "The Changing of the Guard," in which a man at the end of 50-year career as a teacher thinks his work was all for nothing, but then is greeted by ghosts of his past students and sees how he made an impact on them. It's a little saccharine but an okay enough story. With the Christmas setting, it feels a little like a condensed version of It's a Wonderful Life, but peppered with many WWII deaths being counted in the victory column (for their bravery).
- "The Odyssey of Flight 33," in which a jet plane full of passengers suddenly and inexplicably accelerates to impossible speeds, resulting in time travel. This is an eerie concept and done well overall. The radio play format works particularly well here as we jump back and forth from the cockpit to the passengers, hearing one end of the pilot's announcement and then the other.
- "Sounds and Silences," in which a blustering former navy man annoys everyone with his loudness and obsession with ships. Although Richard Kind was giving it his all as the main character Roswell, I couldn't connect with this one particularly well. I thought the quick peek into Roswell's childhood and the reasons behind his behavior was intriguing, but that was about all that caught my attention.
- "Mr. Denton Doomsday," in which a quick draw is challenged with a High Noon-esque confrontation and is plenty worried until a peddler offers him a magic fix. The moral here about avoiding displays of toxic masculinity (e.g., gunplay, excessive drinking to avoid emotion, etc.) is solid, but Westerns don't generally entertain me that much and this was no exception.
"The Hitchhiker," in which a young woman is traveling cross-country and thinks she sees the same man following her across impossible distances, even though no one else she encounters along the way at rest stops and restaurants ever catches a glimpse of him and all assume she is hallucinating from sleep deprivation. This one was the highlight of the collection for me. I think it really did hit the mark on the promised zone "between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge." A person traveling alone (especially a woman) could have some legitimate concerns about safety, but the heightened fear state can cause someone to overreact or think they see something they don't. This is all further complicated by the supernatural element here when we learn by the end that the woman actually died in the story's opening sequence with the car trouble incident and the "hitchhiker' that no one else sees is a grim reaper-style character coming to collect her, which was a fantastic twist that maybe I should have seen coming but absolutely did not even remotely guess.
- "The Grave," in which a town rallies together against a singular man in another High Noon-esque shootout, but then they begin to regret their actions when they worry about a curse he may have left behind at his gravesite. This was probably the most boring story in the collection for me and it just really couldn't hold my attention. As I already stated, I'm not really a Western fan to begin with and two stories of this genre in one short collection was too much. I guess this was supposed to feel more "spooky" with the possibility of a ghost, but I didn't feel any eerie tension from it at all.

Overall, this collection was a bit of a mixed bag but it was engaging enough. I plan to continue on with the series.
