Summary (From the publisher):

July 20, 1969, a date that will live in history-

People the world around were glued to the screen as the lunar lander detached from the Apollo 11 capsule and began its danger-fraught descent to the surface of the Moon. The images of that day will live forever in the memories of all of us priviledged to witness this momentous event: the touchdown, those unforgettable steps on the Moon's surface, the planting of the flag.

It's hard to believe that thirty years have passed since then. But in honor of that destiny-altering mission, some of today's finest science fiction writers have created original lunar tales to send your imagination soaring from the Earth to the Moon.

From a computer-created doorawy to the Moon...to a unique gathering on the Sea of Tranquility...to a scheme to get rich selling moon rocks...to an unexpected problem at a lunar-based fusion facility, here are stories to fill the space-yearnings of every would-be astronaut...

Edited by Peter Crowther.
