Besides writing the first episode of Star Trek and the story that became the film “Ocean’s Eleven” as well as “Logan’s Run”, he also wrote a few of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes “Nothing in the Dark”, “Game of Pool” & :”Kick the Can”. I had the pleasure of meeting him a number of times at various book signing events, but the most memorable time was when he gave a wonderfully fascinating and informative talk on his writing career upstairs at the Bookfellows store in Glendale.
