Synopsis

The Big Tall Wish by Mark Kneece, Rod Serling

Bolie Jackson, a washed-up boxer, is about to be knocked down and counted out. Suddenly he's amazed to find that he has swapped places and is now standing over his knocked-out opponent. Henry, a young neighbour with magical powers, just made the biggest, tallest wish he could come up with - for Bolie to win the match. But will Bolie accept this wish and be victorious?

About the Author

Mark Kneece, Rod Serling

Mark Kneece co-wrote a story in Alien World in 1987 for Pacific Comics and discovered a talent for comics writing. He has written stories for Hellraiser (Marvel / Epic), Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight (DC Comics), The Spirit: New Adventures (Kitchen Sink Press) and Tarzan for the syndicated newspaper strip (United Media). He is the author of the Twilight Zone series, published by Bloomsbury in 2009.

Rod Serling was born in Syracuse, New York, the second of two sons of Esther (née Cooper) and Samuel Lawrence Serling. His brother, Robert J. Serling, later became a novelist. Serling was raised in Binghamton, New York, where he later graduated from Binghamton Central High School. He earned his B.A. in 1950 from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Though brought up in a Jewish family, Serling became a Unitarian Universalist. Serling's family had a summer home on Cayuga Lake, in New York's Finger Lakes region, which inspired the name "Cayuga Productions" for use on Twilight Zone productions.

The first episode of the Twilight Zone was shown in 1959.
