In 1959, renowned writer Rod Serling embarked on an ambitious new television series, The Twilight Zone. This groundbreaking anthology wove morality tales – often with an allegorical bent and featuring twist endings to rival O. Henry – spanning the science fiction, fantasy, suspense, and horror genres. In addition to his producing and narrating chores, Serling himself wrote a remarkable 92 of the show’s 156 episodes. Running for five years, The Twilight Zone went on to become a cultural landmark, winning Serling two of his six Emmy Awards and securing a vaunted position as one of the greatest and most influential television shows of all time.
In 2004, publisher Gauntlet Press embarked on an ambitious new book series, AS TIMELESS AS INFINITY: THE COMPLETE TWILIGHT ZONE SCRIPTS OF ROD SERLING. This ten-volume, limited edition run of signed hardcovers collected all 92 of theTwilight Zone scripts written by Serling, reprinted from the writer’s personal copies. Running for a full decade, the series was edited by writer and Rod Serling Memorial Foundation board member Tony Albarella with direct input from Serling’s wife, Carol. Contributors included Serling’s family, friends, contemporaries who worked with the writer, and current talents who were inspired by him.
