Happy 82nd Birthday, George!

Mystery and Imagination Bookstore in Glendale will celebrate George Clayton Johnson’s 82nd birthday with a party on Sunday, July 10. The festivities begin at 2 p.m.

George is responsible for some of science fiction’s most imaginative, historic and memorable scripts, including The Twilight Zone episodes “Nothing in the Dark,” “Kick the Can,” and “A Game of Pool,” and the first Star Trek episode to air, “The Man Trap.” He collaborated with William Nolan on the novel Logan’s Run, later made into an MGM movie. He also wrote the screenplay for the original Ocean’s 11.
