- Matter Transmitter
Synopsis for "The Creature from Krogarr"
An alien contacts a financially irresponsible Earthman through his TV set and offers to make him famous if he will just make a few adjustments to the TV and allow his body to pass from the alien's planet to Earth. The man does this, but the alien is hostile and had lied to him. He seizes the man and travels back to his home planet. He tells the man that he will be his proof that the method of travel works and puts in a call to his superiors. Once his superiors arrive and have seen the human, he is to be killed, and invasion plans drawn up. Suddenly the man fades away just before the superiors arrive. Angered, they kill the inventor and destroy his machine which they assume is worthless. It turns out that the man had neglected to pay the electric bill and the power to the TV set was shut off, thus saving all of Earth.

- Haunted Hill
Synopsis for "Midnight on Haunted Hill"
A boy is the only witness to the exile of an alien criminal, ala "The Zanti Misfits", to serve a one year sentence on Earth. Since it is dark and raining, the boy cannot identify the creature as it leaves the large spaceship, but hears its occupants tell the prisoner they will return in one year. The boy informs the authorities, but is scoffed at. Since he is persistent, they follow him out to the hill, but there is nothing to be seen but a lone tree. The local paper talks up the story to generate tourist traffic and the boy is humiliated that no one will believe him. A year passes, and thanks to the paper reminding everyone, a bit of a crowd gathers on the hill to get a glimpse of the spaceship that no one really expects. They are startled when one actually descends and even more surprised when the tree uproots itself and ascends in the craft. The people express regret that they did not believe the boy as they could have learned so much from the exile.
