GOING FOR INFINITY pays homage to one of the speculative
fiction's greatest authors of the twentieth century by
providing a taste of Poul Anderson's works as well as his
retrospective thoughts over the six decades he wrote. The
tales run the gamut of science fiction and fantasy with
mystery thrown in showing how diverse a writer Mr. Anderson
was. Some of the science fiction seems obsolete, but when
looked from a historiographic perspective provides insight
into the times the stories were written and into the mind
of a creative individual. The fantasies and detective
contributions hold up better as they clearly show Mr.
Anderson's real talent of turning the obviously impossible
into something that feels real and genuine; thus leaving
the awed audience celebrating the classic works of a
noteworthy renaissance writer.
