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.

A man makes a bet with his friend that he will see a ghost if he stays the night at a local haunted house and his skeptical friend accepts.
