As usual it was quite the par-tay at Bookfellows! And Malcolm and Christine make everyone feel right at home. As you may know, George Clayton Johnson and William F. Nolan wrote the science fiction classic Logan’s Run. George wrote several episodes of the original Twilight Zone such as Kick the Can, Nothing in the Dark, A Game of Pool, and the very first aired episode of the original Star Trek The Man Trap, more affectionately known as the SALT MONSTER!! And let’s not forget Ocean’s Eleven.

So, John King Tarpinian had told Bill and me an amusing story…. Back in the day (and I mean “those daze”) George was the proud proprietor of Café Frankenstein and had charges brought against him for a nude photo session of model Barbara Kellogg in his establishment. Something about the windows being painted, not stained, something about minors peaking through scratches in the paint in said windows, something about an outraged parent… Well, it was the 60’s Baby!

Bill and I said hello to the birthday boy and had our books signed by the Twilight Zone legends.
