Terror Out of Space (Murder at Midnight) <When they bounce radar off the moon, it's a media sensation. But not all of it is good news.>


A Matter of Time (Proudly We Hail) <A good time travel tale, albeit way too serious!>

Pleasant Dreams Mr. Berkowitz (Mystery Playhouse) <Another one of our original tales, involving a time traveler who tries to escape the future. Unfortunately, this story had some production problems and isn't one of our best.>
