Overview

EDITORIAL REVIEW: In *A Fall of Moondust,* time is running out for the passengers and crew of the tourist-cruiser "Selene," incarcerated in a sea of choking lunar dust. On the surface, her rescuers find their resources stretched to the limit by the pitiless and unpredictable conditions of a totally alien environment. *The Lion of Comarre* presents the far-flung future where one city of extraordinary means was built on EartheÄîComarreeÄîand it is rumored to still exist. None but a few know of its location and they hold it a secret, afraid that the knowledge would subvert society. A young man with great prospects and no worries in the world gives them all up to hunt for the fabled city, and what he finds is something mankind has only dreamed of.
