Beyond Infinity by Robert Spencer CarrDecember 12, 2012
The Book: Beyond Infinity by Robert Spencer Carr. Copyright 1951. Published 1954 by Dell (#781).
“Beyond Infinity” -1951 – Somewhat noir-y mystery/indirect observation of a space/time adventure. Good.
“Morning Star” – 1947
“Those Men from Mars” – 1949
“Mutation” – 1951 – Short but slightly tiresome story about survivors of an atomic blast and the mutations they deal with in their environment.
The Evaluation: I enjoyed “Beyond Infinity” and “Those Men from Mars.” The other two were not great stories. The quality of the writing was decent, and fun in places. This collection is a solid “meh” from me.
The Cover: A fine Richard Powers cover. A man, a woman, and an alien environment. And possibly a sign post.
Next Up: Sentinels from Space by Eric Frank Russell.
