    July2016 I m rereading this for the Evolution of Science Fiction group read here topic show The title makes it obvious, but this is an exploration of strange new creatures not much of strange new worlds, though Still, I can see the roots of Star Trek Less obvious is the exploration of a variety of human ideas through a new science called Nexialism, the science of learning many sciences how to synthesize them A science that turns out polymaths, I suppose Elliott Grosvenor is the department of one [...]

    An exploration vessel with a crew complement of almost one thousand wandering between the stars cue some music No, wait a minute, it s not the Enterprise It s the Space Beagle When was this written then Well, the individual parts that make up this novel were published between 1939 and 1952 This is quite a famous little novel, even though current opinion about it is somewhat divided Some of the assumptions in this book are rather na ve, such as allowing a foreign organism into an enclosed system [...]

    Written in 1939, The Voyage of the Space Beagle reads like the prototype for Star Trek A multinational crew of scientists and the military embark on a ten year mission to explore the galaxy, seeking out new aliens and almost being killed by them they even have shields.Grosvenor, our protagonist, is in many ways reminiscent of Mr Spock both are awkward, intelligent men mistrusted by their emotional shipmates because of their cool rationality He also shares the standard characteristics of Van Vogt [...]

    To van Vogt, the universe is a violent place and teaming with life The Space Beagle is a scientific exploration ship sent out from Earth to go where no man has gone before and study all that it finds The alien beings that are encountered are invariably hostile or if they aren t their efforts to communicate their friendship inadvertedly cause much harm.The book has an episodic nature that arises from the fact that it was forged from four seperate short stories that he reworked into one story The [...]

    One of the earliest SF novels I read, even before Asimov At the time, I felt it was fantastic However, the sheen has reduced over the years.This book is an episodic novel, based on the spaceship Space Beagle s journey of exploration maybe inspired by Darwin and the H.M.S Beagle , and deals with many exotic species I remember one living in empty space But my clearest memory is about Nexialism , where knowledge from one area of expertise is used in another area, a sort of stringing together scienc [...]

    I read this undistinguished piece of space opera when I was about 15 I can t say that I was a terribly discerning reader in those days basically I read any SF I got my hands on, and enjoyed most of it but there was one episode that managed to shock even my unreflective teenage self I don t remember all the details, but it went something like this The eponymous ship is several million light years from home when it s attacked by a mysterious disembodied entity It turns out that the aggressor is a [...]

    Let me see if I understand these explorers are the product of a galactic civilization, with atomic foundries to transmute base metals into super substances, the ability to transverse and leave the galaxy itself, to reignite stars and relocate planetsd their interoffice mail system is based on pneumatic tubes There s a tremendous subtext at play throughout the entire work In addition to the obvious fight the phenomenally dangerous monster plot lines, there are meditations on Oswald Spengler s mod [...]

    Lest we think of ourselves as too sophisticated and pooh pooh out of hand some old 1950 science fiction with a somewhat clunky name, perhaps we should reconsider A.E van Vogt s The Voyage of the Space Beagle is a collection of four short stories cobbled together From this unlikely source came the idea for Gene Roddenberry s Star Trek and all its spin offs and movies From the third story came the idea for the movie Alien.You remember the words that started the show Space, the final frontier These [...]

    Fun I mean, look at that name It s 4 short stories with the same main character and the same spaceship woven into one book The main guy seems to be the proto Spock a guy trained in a new science called Nexialism, some kind of all sciences into one with hints of individualism libertarianism with a healthy dose of what science fiction in the 50s was like electronic telepathy, mind controlling, funky big machines etc.Each story is about the crew encountering an unknown, but superior alien organism [...]

    I always hate to write about these venerable SF classics, because very frequently I end up being disappointed by them I know that I can t hold genre fiction from the 1950 s up to the same standards as current day genre fiction, but Well, hold on Actually, I can and I am Maybe I just feel guilty about pointing out the various flaws, especially because back in the day, this was cutting edge stuff Sure, it s filled with cardboard characters almost all male of course that either talk about science, [...]

    I have just started reading old, classic science fiction I have an old pretty well beat up 1970 version so old that it still has an ad for Kent cigarettes in the middle of it I also have a thing for really cool sci fi cover art, so when I m buying these things, I look for the cover art to see if it s entertaining I was surprised to find out, was very likely the basis for one of my favorite movies ever, Alien It is divided up into four stories, all of them tied together by the fact that they all [...]

    Great classic SiFi The four adventures of the crew were originally short stories published in digest and rewritten into book form One of the stories is the basis for the movie Alien and the entire book is obviously the germ of the idea for Star Trek The Main character is Spock to a large degree Nice easy and entertaining read Recommended

    Recently, I picked up a book from SciFi author Alfred Bester that made me aware of particular run of what were being termed SciFi Masterworks I did a quick Google search, and after reviewing the lists of titles and authors that were part of the series I realized that there were quite a few of them I had either never read or never even heard of I ve mentioned before that I m not what you would classify as a long time reader I started reading fairly voraciously about twenty years ago, and I have a [...]

    When I was in college, learning about the history of sci fi, I developed a pretty strong prejudice against A.E van Vogt He represented the bad old days of sci fi, before the New Wave of the 1960s, when everything was hypermasculine, uncritical, optimistic His work was dismissed with the pejorative Space Opera and ignored In fact, I don t know that I even read any of it, maybe part of one novel, I can t recall now In the years since, I ve come to be appreciative of the earlier history of sci fi, [...]

    This is a solid example of 1950s science fiction While I didn t like the fact that four short stories where pasted together fix up novel apparently is the correct term for these publications , overall it was an entertaining read I particularly enjoyed the first story Space Beagle vs Coeurl aka pussy and the last one Space Beagle vs Anabis, the carnivore galaxy The ones in between I found a bit boring All stories can be summed up like this Grosvenor Guys, this alien entity is evil and will kill u [...]

    One reads the classics not to be entertained, but to learn the foundations of the genre an especially important endeavour for those of us whose academic lives revolve around genre I am rarely entertained by such works they re rooted in certain assumptions of humanity that can only elicit a white man totally wrote this for someone like myself The protagonist is the Gariest Stu I ve read in a while only because I avoid white male protagonists these days and while I find Nexialism the concept very [...]

    One of my favorites among the many novels of Van Vogt I have read is this classic The story, like that told in The World of Null A, has as its protagonist a superhero In this case it is a genius scientist who is a Nexialist one skilled in the science of joining together in an orderly fashion the knowledge of one field of learning with that of other fields As a Nexialist, Dr Elliott Grosvenor, is continually endeavoring to unite the disparate, sometimes warring, factions of scientists on the Spac [...]

    The message of this science fiction novel seems to be that mankind should never leave this solar system I was hoping that a space ship with over 800 scientists, intent on exploring new worlds, was exactly the novel I wanted to read They encountered great danger over and over I m looking for a positive science fiction novel about exploring the stars.

    Jared Millet
    Slan is certainly Van Vogt s best remembered novel, but I ve got to admit that I enjoyed this one an awful lot Slan had non stop whiz bang action and enough big concept SF ideas to make your head explode, but the hero was too powerful and the author was clearly making up the story as he went along Space Beagle s hero, on the other hand, starts off as a complete underdog on a starship full of military personnel and scientific departments competing for power and position, Eliot Grosvenor is the s [...]

    At times the Space Beagle travelers seemed as alien to me as the otherworldly beings and places they destroy Excuse me, explore If I were to summarize the plot lines, I d say The Space Beagle came, it saw, it perceived a threat, it conquered Next The characters are one dimensional talking heads, almost all male scientists for whom the world is a laboratory with problems to solve They don t trouble themselves overmuch with ethical or existential niceties They don t have close friends They lack hu [...]

    Voyage of the Space Beagle VOSB is one of the seminal works of early hard science fiction by this master Although the science in the work might be considered quaint, by today s standards, its influence on the genre and later television and film can t be understated One of the aliens named Coeurl even shows up in a couple of video game Such is the impact of this book VSOB is really a compilation of four related, not so short stories 3 written in 1939 and 1 written in 1943 and published in SF peri [...]

    The science is outdated and probably was inaccurate even at the time of writing and the writing style is of the pulp magazine variety That is, don t expect this book to win any major literary prizes It was, however, a rip roaring good old fashion science fiction story It was written before the genre of science fiction had quite matured and it does not have the sophistication that later science fiction gained, but at the same time it was sophisticated than later things like Star Wars, for exampl [...]

    incredibly lame pulpy science fiction of a collection of short stories loosely stitched together than a novel i got through the first quarter before jumping ship a catlike alien who can manipulate electrical impulses takes over a ship crewed by the dumbest humans in space and wreaks havoc they keep calling the alien pussy and the word is used at least 100 times within the first 50 pages this sort of nonsense plays out better in a roger corman or lloyd kaufman film maybe it was a classic when fi [...]

    Space Beagle is a fun and sometimes exciting read, particularly if you love classic space opera It shows its age in terms of technological foresight But the office politics among Van Vogt s hero scientists, who generally fail to achieve a Platonic ideal of scholarly collaboration even as aliens try to slaughter them, is as real as yesterday.

    Pamela Lloyd
    I read this when I was still a kid and I loved the fact that the hero was a scientist whose specialization was generalization He was the one who saw the whole picture, instead of just a narrow slice.
