Twilight Zone writer Earl Hamner, Jr. has written an essay about his career, with special focus on The Twilight Zone, in the upcoming anthology A Feast of Frights From The Horror Zine. His piece is a fascinating look at the early days of television, as well as a career that includes not only The Twilight Zone, but also The Waltons, Falcon Crest, the animated Charlotte's Web feature, and a number of novels and short stories, one of which, "Pets," appears in the March edition of The Horror Zine. As you know, Hamner contributed eight scripts to the original run of The Twilight Zone (more than anyone except Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont, and Rod Serling himself), including: A Feast of Frights from the Horror Zine will be published this spring, and available through online retailers of digital and print books, including Amazon.com and Smashwords.com. In addition to Hamner's essay, the book will also feature short fiction from Simon Clark, Graham Masterton, Joe R. Lansdale, Susie Moloney, Ed Gorman, and Tom Piccirilli and others, as well as my own contribution, "Clawed Sod," which is the story of a revenant looking to make things right from his own grave.
