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 that was proclaimed by Jim Linwood, in his January 1964 fanzine review column in Les Spinge, to represent the "New Wave" of science fiction fans in the UK. The fanzine started out life in November 1963 named Point of View, but by issue three, in 1964, it has become Beyond.

Contributions of articles included Beryl Henley (Link, OZ) on reincarnation, Richard Mayall writing on E.A. Poe, and Peter White writing on J.G. Ballard.

Contributors of fiction included Terence Bishop, and Allan Milne.

The 4th issue featured the "BSFA Survey", listing the problems with the British Science Fiction Association.

The 6th issue contained an article by Archie Mercer (Vector) outlining the position of established fans and an opposing view from Beryl Henley with the views of new fans. Ironically they would soon marry.

Interviews with Ted Carnell (Novae Terrae) and Michael Moorcock (A Fanzine Called Eustace, Vector) were also featured.

The eighth issue, appearing in April 1965, was the last.
