「スコットランドで発見された遺物の碑文から、原子のなかに邪悪な種族の存在することが明らかになったあと、封印が解けたことにより、この種族が地球の征服に乗り出す顛末が語られる。太陽系を原子構造と類似するものと見て、原子のなかにひとつの宇宙を見いだす類推の美学は、本篇において太陽系をひとつの原子とする超越宇宙をもちだすにいたった。本篇で注目すべきは、ダーレスの構築するクトゥルー神話のSF的先駆作品となっていることである」 — 大瀧啓裕編 『ウィアード』 1 (青心社, 1990) p. 334

It was such a natural thing to do, to lean back in your chair and look up through the ceiling window and see the gray-and-bluish globe of Earth spinning away there against the blackness and the stars. But if you started looking, pretty soon you were remembering, and there was no use remembering now, no use at all.”

“A shaft of red light stabs the sky, and Mars hurtles in flaming destruction straight toward Earth”-TOC of part 1

“A three-part weird-scientific serial – strange beings in Rano Kao volcano pull the planet Mars from its orbit.”- TOC of part 2
“As I whirled around, my eyes met a sight that froze the words on my lips in sheer, surprize and terror.”-part 2
“A three-part weird-scientific serial – strange beings under Easter Island pull the planet Mars from its orbit”-TOC of part 3
“A great red ray of light stabs across space toward Mars from the crater of Rano Kao volcano on Easter Island, carrying with it the magnetic force of Earth’s northern magnetic pole against the southern magnetic pole of Mars. The red planet is pulled from its orbit and hurtles straight toward Earth.
Dr. Whitley and Professor Allan try to save the Earth from destruction, but are captured by the bat-winged men from Mars who live in the crater of the extinct volcano, and are carried to their city in the bowels of the Earth. There they learn the details of the Martians’ scheme from Dr. Holland, who has been captured years before. The captives plan to escape from their guards (strange, mechanically constructed creatures created by the bat-winged Martians), in a desperate attempt to save the Earth. If they fail – and the chances are a million to one against them – in a few days the atmosphere of Mars will touch that of Earth, and the world will be overrun by Martians flying from their planet to Earth, armed with a crumbling ray to destroy humanity.”-part 3

「九月から三カ月にわたって発表された<<宇宙を渡って>>シリーズは、この若い作家のあらゆる可能性を示すものだった。売り子が新聞を振り上げながら大声をはりあげている。語り手のアランがふと目をやると、その新聞には大きな活字で”世界の終わり”という見出しが出ている。この時から意外な出来事がはじまるのである。アランはすぐ新聞を買い求めて、公式声明を読む。(中略)けれども衝突は起こらないのである。火星は接近しているのではなかった。実は、地球上には、黎明期以来火星から追放され、地下都市で生活している火星人がいたのである。彼らの科学によって、火星は地球に引き寄せられているのだった。この火星人の存在は、私たちにはまったく知られていない。彼らはイースター島の巨石像に似ている。というのは、この巨石像は、火星人が地球の土を踏んでいた時代の名残りだったのである(イースター島にある巨石像の期限に関して、公認の科学が伏せている新事実を明らかにするのだと主張する作家は少なくなく、この種の馬鹿げた説明は今日ひきもきらぬ有様である)」- ジャック・サドゥール著; 鹿島茂,鈴木秀治訳『現代SFの歴史』(早川書房, 1984.12) p. 117
「最初に掲載されのは「マムルスの邪神」だが、先に売れたのは「宇宙横断」だった。これは人類が誕生するよりも前に地球に植民していた火星人が、いまも地下の洞窟で生きているという話。彼らは地球を乗っとって、火星を地球近くの軌道まで動かす計画に取りかかっていた。この作品にはハミルトンが十代のころから愛読していたマンジー系雑誌の影響がうかがえるが、彼はその後またたくまに、こうした種類のSFの第一人者としての地位を確立していく。」 – マイク・アシュリー著; 牧眞司訳『SF雑誌の歴史 : パルプマガジンの饗宴』(東京創元社, 2004.7) p. 159
