Overview

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...
GURRUL WAS A GROSS MAN with a cruel mouth and close-set eyes. He scrutinized us in silence for a full minute, as though he were trying to read our in-most thoughts. He was really fixing in his mind every detail of our appearance, and he would know us again whenever or wherever he saw us and only the cleverest of disguises could deceive him. It is said of him that Gurrul knows a million people thus, but that seems to me like an exaggeration.
He took our credentials and examined them carefully; then he asked for the military secrets I had brought from Orvis, and when I turned them over to him he glanced through them hurriedly, giving no indication of any great interest in them.
"You flew for the enemy?" he demanded of me.
"Yes," I replied.
"Why?" he asked.
"Because I knew no other country than Unis," I explained.
"Why did you turn against the country of your birth?" he asked.
"Unis is not the country of my birth."
"Where were you born?"
"On another planet in another solar system millions of miles from here."

This was one of Edger Rice Burroughs' books that got me hooked on reading. I found them fun reading and enjoyed the people, planets and the adventures that each found themself in. In was glad to see it out again.
