The Creature from Beyond Infinity: A Remarkably Rich and Dynamic Sci-Fi Story
Henry Kuttner is a name resounding across the golden age of sci-fi as one of the most inspired and talented writers of the period right after WWII. One of his first novels, the Creature from Beyond Infinity has essentially aged like a fine wine, after having first been published in 1940, under the name "A Million Years to Conquer."
Kuttner has spared no effort in trying to make this novel an excellent tale that sci-fi enthusiasts would continue to read and admire for years to come. Although the book is relatively short, it is definitely not lacking in eventful depictions and exciting tales that will glue you to your seat as you might read it in a single sitting.
The plot follows the storyline of Ardath, a Kyrian whose spaceship has crashed to the Earth. Sole survivor, Ardath has managed to repair the ship according to the instructions of his captain prior to his death, and has remained in stasis for millions upon millions of years, observing the development of Earth until modern times.
Once mankind appeared on the Earth, Ardath began to pick up various geniuses and superior members of the human race with the intention of creating a superior human and alter the planet's evolution. Aside from Ardath's intriguing and somewhat disturbing adventure,
Kuttner also presents a masterfully depicted parallel timeline that follows an Earth scientist in the 1940s who battles a deadly plague. With the plague appearing to come from outer space, eventually the two timelines collide in a series of surprising events that even the most intelligent readers will have difficulty in foreseeing.
The Creature from Beyond Infinity remains among the most well-received sci-fi novels in recent history, despite the fact that it was only the first novel of this type written by Henry Kuttner.
