A Fall of Moondust

Arthur C. Clarke

“From the creator of 2001: A Space Odyssey, one of science fiction’s most influential grandmasters, comes a “superbly brilliant” classic about surviving in space (Daily Express).

Building a robust tourism sector is essential to increasing the Moon’s population. But when the Selene, a prototype tourist vessel, experiences a moonquake, it crashes into the Sea of Thirst, a massive expanse of liquid-fine moondust. While the passengers and crew are running out of time, rescuers are forced to use all of their available resources due to the unpredictability of the lunar environment.

Fans of Andy Weir’s The Martian will enjoy this masterfully imagined tale of human inventiveness and survival, which was nominated for the Hugo Award in 1963. It is a tour de force of psychological suspense and continuous dramatic tension.”
