by Clarke, Arthur C

Condition: See description


New York: Harcourt, Brace & World, Inc., [1961].. Octavo, cloth. First edition. "A sightseeing vehicle, packed with tourists, sinks into a sea of dust on the Moon's surface. The subsequent struggle for survival is tensely described, with fascinating scientific details. Not one of Clarke's 'visionary' novels, but probably the best of his works of near-future realism." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 129. Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 3-101. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. A very sharp copy. (#136405).
