    Forget This One

    In what has become an avalanche of Twilight Zone books published recently I found myself returning to this book which for almost 30 years has been considered the bible of Twilight Zone. And over the years more and more people discovered the book is filled with error after error. If you are looking for a book that will not steer you wrong, try elsewhere. Thirty years ago is was a must-have. It has since become obsolete.
