BEYOND

Berkley Medallion paperback, 1963. Cover artwork

"The late, lamented Beyond, edited by H. L. Gold, published during its career some of the best adult fantasy and science fiction stories written in America - stories by masters such as Theodore Sturgeon, Ray Bradbury and Algis Budrys" 
-Damon Knight.
"The Watchful Poker Chip - Ray Bradbury tells the story of a man who had one of his eyes replaced with the most beautiful poker chip in the world... 

The Real People - a startling story which shows that most of us are only puppets - and Algis Budrys proves it... 

The Ghost Maker - Frederik Pohl demonstrates that if you track real magic to its lair, you may be very, very sorry..."
