The first novel of Malzberg's to be published in hardcover, an excellent writer who specialized in "bitterly humorous psychological tales, many of them present-tense and first person." Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction (1990), page 28. Beyond Apollo is "a blackly humorous piece of genre-subversion, typical of this author's work...it aroused a great deal of controversy." Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction (1990), page 36. "[A] wickedly funny undermining of the SF myth of the conquest of space, of which Campbell was one of the principal promoters." Barron, Anatomy of Wonder (1995), *4-273. Award History: Winner of the 1973 John W. Campbell Award for Best Novel. (The first year the award was presented.)
