Beyond was a science fiction fanzine published by Charles Platt in the UK.

Arriving in the early 1960's, Beyond was one of the fanzines representing he "New Wave" of science fiction fans in the UK. The fazines started out life in November 1963 named Point of View, but by issue three, in 1964, it has become Beyond. The eighth issue, appearing in April 1965, was the last.

Contributions included Peter White writing on J.G. Ballard. The 4th issue featured the "BSFA Survey", listing the problems with the British Sceince Fiction Association. The 6th issue contained an article by Archie Mercer outlining the position of established fans and an opposing view from Beryl Henley (Link, Oz) with the views of new fans. Ironically they would soon marry.
