Rod Serling became a cultural icon of the 20th Century with his creation ‘The Twilight Zone,’ which more than 50 years later was nominated by the Writers Guild of America as the third best written television series of the past seventy years. Of the 156 Twilight Zone episodes, Serling wrote 92. In the early 1960s, Rod Serling, novelized nineteen (19) of his scripts and published them in three volumes – this is the third. In this volume, you will read about a con man inflicted with the necessity to tell the truth; the moral and ethical conflict of having to refuse your neighbor and their children a safe haven; a phoney braggart thrown into the midst of the reality of his pretensions; a drunken Santa Claus who understood the real meaning of Christmas; the desperation and futility of escaping from the end of the world; and how a band of thieves, despite a perfect plan of escape, succumbs to retributive justice through their own hands.
