Rod Serling, "The Twilight Zone" (1959): Birth records say Rodman E. Serling was born on Christmas Day 1924 in Syracuse, N.Y. -- doesn't that disqualify him from this list? And wasn't "The Twilight Zone" just as often about magic, horror or weird fate? Perhaps, but gray areas were the specialty of a show that pioneered an elevated sort of sci-fi, and its greatest character was the eccentric narrator with a dual citizenship in the real and in the imagined.
