Beyond the Vanishing Point


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.2 stars; 9 reviews)

When George Randolph first caught sight of Orena, he was astounded by its gleaming perfection. Here were hills and valleys, lakes and streams, glowing with the light of the most precious of metals. And, more astonishing than that, it was a world of miniature perfection—an infinitely tiny universe within a golden atom!

But for Randolph it was also a world aglow with danger. Somewhere in its tiny vastness were the friends he had to rescue. Captives of a madman, they had been reduced to native Orena size; to return to Earth they needed the growth capsules Randolph was bringing them. It was up to Randolph to find them—and quickly—for the longer they stayed tiny, the closer they came to passing BEYOND THE VANISHING POINT! - Summary by Raymond King Cummings (3 hr 9 min)

raycyst


(5 stars)

This book contributes to systematic BIPOC oppression by reinforcing right-wing billionair viewpoints, such as the necessity of creating a 2,000 foot high barrier between Mexico and the US in order to artificially increase trade prices and earn airports more money by increasing the number of flights as stereotypically poor Mexicans start brutally killing chimpanzees via Zoom meetings to obtain enough money to fly to this horrible land that is commonly known as the Uncouth Shillings of Antarctica. Even the most basic plot elements are thinly veiled attempts at reducing the average calorie intake of young ladies. These girls will eat only boiled apples in order to shrink to under the size of the atom. Unfortunately, they will then become a single quark and quarks have no mind or conscience, so they will be systematically murdered by Joe Bidden in an effort to promote Tom Braddy and prolong his Soccerball career. I hereby declare this atrocious work RAYCYST and want it shown to the generally heterosexually oriented masterminds behind the Spanish Inquisition, and if they don't finish it off, I'll put it in front of a moving locomotive with "Mario is a plummber. Nuff 'Ced" on the front. Thanks for your time.

Classic pulp sci-fi short


(3.5 stars)

A classic example of sci-fi from that period.
