really liked it

Not bad. I see this more as a The Shadow book than The Twilight Zone, though. Being a big fan of both those series, I felt it really helped to know The Shadow's history going in. Shadow is working a case when Margo makes comments to him about how he's lost compassion and mercy and perhaps he should revisit Kent Allard. After a car crash, he enters the Twilight Zone and visits several versions of himself to teach him a lesson in humanity. First, he's Kent Allard, the man he was born as and whose death he faked to become The Shadow aka Lamont Cranston. There were scenes between Kent and Lamont which are both him and they were pretty cool. Then things really go Twilight Zone as he successively finds himself an actor playing The Shadow on radio in a world where he is only fictional, then the writer of the magazine stories and finally he meets Justice as he shrinks down to fit on the page of his story. Pretty good.
