[Apr. 7, 1962] Half and Half (The Twilight Zone, Season 3, Episodes 25-28)

Read all the way through because, in keeping with the show, there's a bit of a twist around the mid-article mark. You won't want to miss it:

It's been a topsy turvy month: Snow is falling in coastal Los Angeles. Castro's Cuba has been kicked out of the Organization of American States. Elvis is playing a Hawaiian beach bum. So it's in keeping that the latest issue of Fantasy and Science Fiction is, well, uneven.

I am happy to say that the October 1960 F&SF truly is, as it says on the cover, an "all star issue."
