The word DEFINITIVE is not one that should be bandied about loosely or bestowed too readily on any text. However, Martin Grams Jr.'s newest television history can, without reservation, be called definitive, essential, benchmark, and all other terms that indicate no collection should be without it. --Tony Fonseca, DEAD RECKONINGS, Spring 2009
Readers who feel they've entered this dimension before, namely via Marc Scott Zicree's TWILIGHT ZONE COMPANION years ago, are in for a treat. Grams has dug further than any other researcher into this durable anthology's creation and history, a series which included among its fans novelist Ayn Rand and actress Jodie Foster. THE TWILIGHT ZONE: UNLOCKING THE DOOR TO A TELEVISION CLASSIC is a proud testament to the series's enduring appeal. --Issue #120, Filmfax Magazine
I'm blown away by the mass of data... by the attention to the smallest detail. It puts everything else written about TWILIGHT ZONE in the shade. Monumental and fascinating and hugely informative. --William F. Nolan, famous science fiction author
