Publisher's Summary

Experience one of television's greatest science fiction series: The Twilight Zone.

This collection of episodes is fully dramatized for audio and features a full cast, music, sound effects, and performances by some of today's biggest celebrities.

"Night Call", starring Mariette Hartley: An elderly, invalid woman begins receiving strange, anonymous phone calls on a stormy night - phone calls that, she finds out, are routed directly through the Twilight Zone.

"Long Live Walter Jameson", starring Lou Diamond Phillips: Professor Walter Jameson is an excellent history teacher who talks about the past as if he had lived it. His soon-to-be father-in-law suspects the worst.

"The Lateness of the Hour", starring Jane Seymour and James Keach: A young woman, bored with the precise, faultless routine of her family's life, persuades her father to dismantle their robot servants.

"The 30-Fathom Grave", starring Blair Underwood: When a naval destroyer picks up a signal from a ship that sank 20 years ago, a crewman is haunted by a strange memory buried at the bottom of the sea.

"The Man in the Bottle", starring Ed Begley, Jr.: An impoverished pawnbroker is granted four wishes by a genie in a bottle. The problem isn't just that his wishes end up not being what he expected - it's what they did end up being.

"Night of the Meek", starring Chris McDonald: Henry Corwin, a down-at-the-heels department store Santa, dispenses Christmas cheer to a mission house with the help of a sack that will produce whatever one asks for.

    Two great passions - dogs and books! Sci-fi/fantasy novels are my go-to favorites, but I love good writing across all genres.

    "Fun trip to the past"

    Even before I found sci-fi in books, I discovered some of the wonder of it on TV in The Twilight Zone. TTZ was already in reruns even when I was a kid, but I would watch every chance I got and I loved the show. The episodes on Volume 1 are all original Serling dramas that have been rescripted for radio vs. TV. Some have sort of been updated, most are fairly true to the 50's and 60's. Although I remember a couple of these stories from the show, none of the ones on Volume 1 were among my favorites. However, I didn't realize the radio remake was being done and that these episodes were available on Audible until Volume 1 was offered on the Daily Deal so I am really happy I picked this up. Now that I know, I will go look for the volumes that might have some of my old favorites. (Best episode of all time for me was The Lonely with Jean Marsh - my brother had bad dreams for weeks after that one!)

    If you loved the old TV show, you'll enjoy this - just the old TTZ music (doo doo dah, doo doo dah) brought back the anticipation I used to feel when the show started. If you never watched the TV show, you still might enjoy these dramas because the performances are really good, but you won't really understand why some of us still miss the master of delicious creepiness, Rod Serling.

    "Reminded me of why I enjoyed Twilight Zone on tv"
    Would you listen to The Twilight Zone Radio Dramas, Volume 1 again? Why?

    I would like to listen to future Volumes, but not Volume 1 again because I had seen all the episodes on television years ago.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Twilight Zone Radio Dramas, Volume 1?

    The performances were excellent.


    Have you listened to any of full cast’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me nostalgic.

    "Best audio experience!"

    This cast has true story-telling talent! Long love radio broadcasting and long live The Twilight Zone. I will listen to this again and again to enjoy all the creative nuances created with voice and sound. Best Audible purchase ever and destined to be a gem for generations of my family. This will be a great archive item to teach my "techie" grandchildren about the magic of focused listening and share the memories of the family gathered around the radio with my parents. Please offer more like this!

    "The music still scares me!"

    This brought back a lot of memories. Pretty authentic to the original. Music , sound effects and narration were excellent. Loved that you could listen to a 30 minute episode, terrific for a commute. Take a trip back to the twilight zone!

    "Fun"

    As a fan of the t.v. Show in my youth, I found this visit to the Twilight Zone, via audio drama, to be great fun.

    "THE GREAT TWILIGHT ZONE"

    This brought back to me being a very small child and the end of something special. Radio acting is still alive and well. I can't wait to get the next volumes. Everyone was wonderful.

    Love the old twilight zone shows being told in this radio drama! Even though I remember all the shows, this drama added a new level of fun and suspense. I will definitely be buying the rest of the volumes!
