Sand Kings

Two questions, one should be in books but I wanted to keep them together.

There was a show Twilight zone or something that did an hour movie called "Sand Kings" Is it available anywhere? What venue was it shown under?
No Luck on IMDB. must be buried in a series.

Off the thread a bit I origionally read Sand Kings in OMNI magazine many years back, Is it published anywhere so I can get a copy. some anthology or something?

Thanks Phil

Sand Kings is an episode of the 1990s Outer Limits. Read somewhere that season sets are suppose to be coming. Not on any of the discs currently available.

The author is George RR Martin. He published a short story collection in the 80s called "Sandkings" that included this story, but I believe this collection is out of print. Amazon lists the shory story alone available for download for $1.99. And they have links to buying the used collection through other vendors (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...912553-9986406). Not that I'm shilling for Amazon -- you can probably find it elsewhere too.

I remember that story. It won a Hugo Award, or something. Creepy as hell.
