The First Men in the Moon, Paperback Book

The First Men in the Moon Paperback

Part of the S.F. Masterworks series


'As we saw it first it was the wildest and most desolate of scenes.

We were in an enormous amphitheatre, a vast circular plain, the floor of the giant crater.

Its cliff-like wall closed us in on every side?'Thanks to the discovery of an anti-gravity metal, Cavorite, two Victorian Englishman decide to tackle the most prestigious goal - space travel.

They construct a sphere that will ultimately take them to the moon.

On landing, they encounter what seems like an utterly barren landscape but they soon find signs that the planet was once very much alive.

Then they hear curious hammering sounds from beneath the surface, and come face to face with the Selenites, a race of insect-like aliens living in a rigidly organised hive society.
