| || “Such Interesting Neighbors” |

First publication: Collier’s, 6 Jan 1951
Al Lewis and his wife Nell have new neighbors, an inventor who talks of time travel from the future and his wife Ann.
The story was the basis for the second episode of Science Fiction Theater and also Spielberg’s Amazing Stories.
But Ann walked straight into that door and fell. I couldn’t figure out how she came to do it; it was as though she expected the door to open by itself or something. That’s what Ted said, too, going over to help her up. “Be careful, honey,” he said, and laughed a little, making a joke of it. “You’ll have to learn, you know, that doors won’t open themselves.”
