Beyond Metafiction

‘Beyond Apollo’ by Barry N. Malzberg (1972)

Once again, Malzberg rewrites the history of NASA’s space program along with our solar system and the universe.

“One human being is nothing, no matter the investment, no matter the relationship, no matter the circumstances; in the long run, we must essentially take a cheap view of human life if we are to get anywhere.” (p. 80)

“We have no business out here…nothing can justify this horror…I have had this enormous insight into everything. Things are not worth the price we pay.” (p. 17)

“I’ve never had much use for science fiction.” (p. 53)


About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
