Synopsis: "Written with deceptive simplicity, a natural and easy grace that conceals it won artfulness... Ripples with humor and sparkles with life." - New York Times

The review quoted above speaks about another book written by Robert Spencer Carr, but every word applies with equal force to the four stories which make up "Beyond Infinity". These tales are Science Fiction, superb stories revealing unusual heights of imagination and a sure, smooth writing style that is rarely found in this type of work. Nor as these stories merely good science fiction - they are unusually good stories by any standard, ingenious tales of romance and adventure written for the Atomic Age.

The plots? To reveal them in detail would not be fair to the reader; to him is left the pleasure of discovering them for himself. The title story, "Beyond Infinity", deals with a quest as old as the human race, and the first flight into space, a flight into realms "beyond infinity".... In "Those Men From Mars", Mr. Carr tells what happens when Martians visit the Earth, one group landing on the White House lawn, and the other at the Kremlin in Moscow!... "Morning Star", begins with a meeting of the greatest living scientists, assembled to discuss the world's most dangerous weapon. An intruder slips in - a woman who is as baffling as she is beautiful - of whom it can truthfully be said that she is "out of this world".... "Mutation" presents a fascinating answer to the question prodding the mind of every thinking person: "what about the effects of radiation after an atomic war?"

Here is writing of an unusually high order. At one and the same time "Beyond Infinity" will enthrall the dyed in the wool science fiction fan, and will charm and delight the reader for whom science fiction is a strange and fearsome realm.
