May 11th – Twilight Zone Day

submitted by Marie V.

You are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. Next stop, the Twilight Zone!”

Rod Serling

May 11th is Twilight Zone Day.  Twilight Zone was created by Rod Serling in 1959.  The beloved series explores themes of Science Fiction, Psychological Thrillers and Horror.  The show was popular and captivated viewers.  Most folks have a favorite episode of the series.  Some popular episodes include ‘Eye of the Beholder’ ‘Nightmare at 20,000 feet’ ‘Living Doll’ and ‘The Obsolete Man’ to name a few.  My favorite episode is “It’s a Good Life’ in this episode Little Anthony controls the townsfolk into obeying his every command or he will banish them into the cornfield. 

The Twilight Zone ran from 1959-1964.  The series is still a fan favorite.  It has inspired both books on the series itself as well as its impact on pop culture and life.  Several times within the year Twilight Marathons will grace our TV screens.  I’m sure all of you can hear the theme song and can hum along.

The following titles are available from the Santa Fe Public Library in either a book or e-book format:

The Twilight Zone encyclopedia

The Twilight zone FAQ: all that’s left to know about the fifth dimension and beyond

The Twilight Zone companion

The Twilight Zone

The Twilight Man: Rod Serling and the birth of television

Enjoy your time in the Twilight Zone and remember,

“Imagination… its limits are only those of the mind itself.”

― Rod Serling
