In the early 1970s, Emmy-winning dramatist Rod Serling followed his landmark television series, The Twilight Zone, with Night Gallery. This multisegment foray into the macabre proved to be a new forum for Serling’s unique brand of storytelling. In chronicling the turbulent history behind this innovative program, authors Scott Skelton and Jim Benson provide fascinating production detail and behind-the-scenes material, with critical commentary, complete cast and credit listings, and synopses of all ninety-eight episodes. Containing more than one hundred photographs-some never before published-this book is spiced with anecdotes from such film and television luminaries as Leonard Nimoy, John Astin, Sydney Pollack, Roddy McDowall, Richard Kiley, and Leslie Nielsen. Rod Serling’s Night Gallery: An After-Hours Tour offers the first comprehensive overview of a significant entry in the annals of classic television.

Something wicked has been preying on Sunnydale students -- and whatever it is, its methods are pretty gruesome. Buffy locates some human bones that have been picked clean, and knows that she's dealing with an unearthly evil. Some help from the Scooby Gang would be ideal, but they've run into trouble of their own. Oz and Xander are literally (perhaps unnaturally) mesmerized by a hottie new chick band headlining at the Bronze, and Willow has been captured by Sunnydale's latest resident carnivores. What they need is the Slayer. But in order to help her friends, Buffy must first dust a vampire -- one that has an urgent interest in Joyce Summers, the unique ability to resist sunlight, and an open invitation to the Summers' house...
Welcome to the Gallery Hotel; home to vampires, witches and other creatures of myth, and the last safe haven in what's left of the Bay Area. It survived the end of the world, but can it survive those that caused it?
She’s their best agent. Now they’ve given her a new mission. Sarah Harris must kill presidential candidate Robert Montcrieff on his wedding day in St Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan. There’s just one problem: Sarah is Montcrieff’s bride. She has one week to persuade them they’ve made a terrible mistake. Her frantic search for answers will bring her face to face with Sin for Salvation, an ancient cult with murderous rituals. Its members aspire to commit an ultimate sin known as Prohibition A. The cult preaches a hypersexual creed that has seduced Wall Street’s highest flyers. They enlist recruits in the world’s most exclusive nightclub, revolving around a sado-masochistic fantasy journey through Dante’s nine circles of hell. But when its wealthy clientele leave the club, it’s neither lust nor lucre they have on their minds. It’s murder.
INCLUDES THE THREE BEST GHOST STORIES EVER Who among us, lying in bed at night, listening to the noises of the house – that creak in the stairs, the clock ticking away in the empty hall – has not experienced a momentary chill, that first tremor of fear? What is it about Britain, asks Andrew Martin, that makes it such a fitting playground for the supernatural? We are, it seems, a nation primed for ghostliness; our history, our landscape, our very climate are inherently eerie. In Ghoul Britannia, Martin takes a wry look at our haunted isle, goes to cursed houses, talks to psychics and believers, and studies exorcisms. He asks why some ghosts appear in libraries and others at the end of the bed, what ghosts like to wear, and whether you should feel nervous on a foggy, moonlit night... In this engrossing new book, Martin searches out the dark corners of our subconscious in an attempt to explain our most deep-seated fears – why, despite famously being a nation of cynics, we just cannot quite ignore that bump in the night.
