The Other Glass Teat
24 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

At the time this episode was written the author, Harlan Ellison, was also writing a newspaper TV reviews column in the The Los Angeles Free Press under the title 'The Glass Teat'.

Some of the history of the show, and the first draft of the script for this particular episode, are contained in Ellison's book 'The Other Glass Teat' and fascinating reading it is too.

The title, 'The Whimper of Whipped Dogs', was not used on screen and Ellison liked it so much that he used it again in 1974 for a crime short story which won an Edgar. There is no connection - other than the title - between the two stories.

The ISBN for the 1983 Ace edition of 'The Other Glass Teat' is 0441642748
