Beyond the Farthest Star is a science fiction novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The novel consists of two novellas, “Adventure on Poloda” and “Tangor Returns,” written quickly in late 1940. The first was published in “The Blue Book Magazine” in 1942, but the second did not see publication until 1964 when it was featured in Tales of Three Planets along with “The Resurrection of Jimber-Jaw” and The Wizard of Venus.
Burroughs likely intended Beyond the Farthest Star to be the opening of a new series comparable to the Barsoom or Pellucidar sequences, but declining health and Burroughs’s World War II service as a war correspondent prevented this from happening.
