Synopsis for "Quicksand"Edit

Tales to Astonish Vol 1 32 001
Two brothers own an estate out on the moor, but one wishes to destroy the other blind one that he may possess it all. He pretends to show good will to the blind brother and offers to take him out for a walk onto the moor. He leads him to a pit of quicksand and then shouts about running off some poachers and leaves his brother alone. When the man stumbles into the quicksand, the other brother is overjoyed and makes his way back to the house. That evening, he feels guilty and cannot sleep. He thinks he hears a noise upon the stairs. To his horror, the door opens and a thing covered in wet sand slowly advances upon him. He backs away, towards the open window. It turns out the blind brother was rescued by leprechauns that live under the bog and they offer to repair his sight if he stays with them for a week. He is overjoyed and wishes to tell his brother once his sight is repaired he will do what he always wanted to do and go out to sea, so he'll have to give his half of the estate to him. He is puzzled when his brother doesn't respond. Even though he got what he wanted, he didn't get to enjoy it since he was so terrified by what he took to be his brother's corpse seeking revenge he fell out the window down to the courtyard far below.

Synopsis for "I Am a Martian"Edit

Tales to Astonish Vol 1 32 028
A man claims to be a martian but no one believes him. A newspaper editor thinks that he can sell papers with the story, so he contacts the man and asks him how he'd prove that he was from Mars. The man replies he can improve on the design of any Earth device. They make arrangements with the fire dept. for him to work on a fire truck ladder which he claims will be able to reach any size height. What his modifications actually allow him to do is reach orbit and propel himself back to Mars. The editor and the astonished crowd are flabbergasted that they had the story of the century in their hands and let it slip through, and then the realization sets in that since he looked the same as any of them, how many other Martians might be hiding amongst them?
