- "The Interstellar Search"
- "The Infinite Atom"
Astounding reviewer P. Schuyler Miller found "The Incredible Planet" "a kind of bridge to the Don A. Stuart style which writer-editor Campbell [had been] developing." Everett F. Bleiler thought the sequels "lack the strengths, such as they are, of The Mightiest Machine."
