OVERVIEW:

My friends Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont, and Theodore Sturgeon all taught me by example -- as I watched them exercising different sets of mental muscles switching from one form to another as required by the story or the marketplace -- that if I hoped to earn a living and have writing as a career like theirs, I would need to learn to write effective film scripts as well as stories and articles.
This retrospective collection contains examples of all three types of writing, selected from the work of a lifetime.
-- George Clayton Johnson

George Clayton Johnson has written for the likes of The Twilight Zone (both television show and the movie), Star Trek, and co-wrote the novel Logan's Run. This mammoth retrospective collection includes more than a dozen classic stories; teleplays from TZ and The Law and Mr. Jones; television story treatments for an unproduced ST episode and a weekly series inspired by Frankenstein; a full-length unproduced fantasy screenplay; a movie treatment on the death of H.P. Lovecraft; and thousands upon thousands of words of original fiction written especially for this volume, including the autobiographical short novel, Every Other War.
