About This Item

London: Victor Gollancz, 1961 First edition, second printing. The book has the name of a previous owner written in pen on the front end page and a slight musty odor. The dust jacket has two small tears, one at top of the front cover near the gutter, the other at the bottom of the rear page, also near the gutter. Neither are very noticeable with the archival protective cover is on (the photos are with the cover off). Overall, a nice copy of an early Clarke work. All books are bubble-wrapped and placed in a sturdy shipping box when mailed. Tracking number provided with domestic shipments.


A Fall of Moondust is a science fiction novel by Arthur C. Clarke, first published in 1961. It was nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Novel, and was the first science fiction novel selected to become a Reader's Digest Condensed Book. By the 21st century, the Moon has been colonized, and is open to tourists who can afford the trip. Some of them are trapped after a lunar quake. Can they be rescued?
