  1. The Stories from The Twilight Zone books that came out in 2013 - are they just reprints of the same books released by Bantham in the early 60s and later compiled as The Complete Twilight Zone stories?
    Just wondering as I'm sure it would be less expensive to pick up a used copy of the compiled edition.

    1. Yes they are reprint editions with new introductions.
