The Once and Future Moon

266 pages

Published October 2019

The Moon.

It has been there throughout human history: accompanying, guiding, inspiring and influencing us. Without it there might be no philosophy, literature, mathematics, religion, astronomy or exploration.

We might think we can conquer the Moon but perhaps the truth is that the Moon controls us.
This anthology will take you from the Stone Age to the near-future via alternate history.

Eighteen brand new science fiction and science fantasy tales by some of today’s top writers.

Edited by British Fantasy Award winner Allen Ashley.
