Synopsis for "The Shambler from the Stars!"

A man finds a copy of an occult book which allows him and a fellow occultist to summon the Shambler from the Stars. It kills the one who read the summoning, but the man burns the book and the house down. The police arrest him and charge him with murder but he tells his lawyer that he knows that the Shambler will come for him in jail.
