Publisher's Summary

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 mercilessly unpredictable conditions of a totally alien environment.

©1961 Arthur C. Clarke (P)2016 W F Howes Ltd

Well worth the revisit.

First read as a secondhand paperback costing 1\6d.(that's 7.5p for the non pre-decimal). Loved it then and enjoyed it now.

As good as I remember it.

As good as I remember it. I first read it in the 1960s as part of my growing love for Clarke.

a gripping read

although a little dated this really is a page Turner of a story, and keeps you on the edge
right to its conclusion, this is one of Clarkes
finest books, anyone wishing to get into
sci fi ,this comes well recommended.

not a space opera but a good listen
