Question: I was wondering if you could tell me the title of the Twilight Zone episode I am about to describe. The show was centered around an author who could create people by talking into his dictation machine. If he wanted to get rid of these people, he would destroy the tape. His wife thought he was cheating on her with one of his creations. He even had Rod Serling's "tape" in an envelope, too. Corey M., East Orange, N.J.
