Friend and fellow blogger Rabid Fox, whose blog you should read regularly anyway, just did a nice piece called "My Five: Favorite Twilight Zone Episodes by Charles Beaumont". This is worth a look, because Beaumont, who wrote a number of classic short stories and 22 episodes for Twilight Zone, is one of the great more-or-less forgotten authors. Beaumont contracted what seemed to be early-onset Alzheimer's in his early thirties, and was dead at 37. There are a lot of great stories that didn't get written because of this. Read his collection The Howling Man, if you get a chance. .
