New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, . Octavo, boards. First edition. The author's first book. Collects seventeen stories, of which eight are printed here for the first time. Classic collection by one of the major contributors to "The Twilight Zone" TV series. Signed inscription by Beaumont on the front free endpaper: "For Bill Froug -- / Here's to softened / lines, pure exposition, / and devious dialogue! / Chuck Beaumont." Beaumont wrote for most of the episodic television shows in the early to mid 1960s, but "The Twilight Zone" was clearly his favorite, with 22 scripts. Similarly, Bill Froug was an active producer on many shows in the early '60s, but had a particularly strong connection to "The Twilight Zone," producing, by coincidence, 22 shows. The two would work together on two episodes: "Queen of the Nile" (6 March 1964) and "Number 12 Looks Just Like You" (24 January 1964). A remarkable association copy, acquiring special poignance through Beaumont's early death at age 38, just ten years after the publication of this book. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 110.
