A lunar cruise ends in disaster after a moonquake sinks the cruiser Selene beneath a sea of liquid-fine lunar dust on the Moon’s Sea of Thirst. Facing enormous environmental barriers, the rescue team finds their courage, ingenuity, and resources tested to the breaking point—as trapped passengers and crew slowly run out of time.

Originally published in 1961, A Fall of Moondust was nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Novel, and was the first science fiction tale chosen as a Reader’s Digest Condensed Book. Informed by the most current scientific knowledge of the time, A Fall of Moondust is a realistically conceived and gripping story of human resourcefulness and triumph in the face of nearly insurmountable challenges.
