Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in Earthlight
by Arthur C. Clarke

Excellent early Clarke novel; it has the great pacing and measured, rational perspective that are a hallmark of Clarke's books. It takes place on the Moon in the not-to-far distant future; lunar bases and observatories dot the lunar surface. There are political tensions, but Clarke always measures their dangers against the harsh reality of life in space. Highly recommended.
