Regular price £8.99 £8.99 Sale

Featuring twelve stories by a roster of classic SF authors including Arthur C. Clarke, H.G. Wells and John Wyndham.

Before the Apollo 11 mission succeeded in landing on the Moon in 1969, writers and visionaries were fascinated by how we might get there and what we might find. The Greeks and Romans speculated about the Moon almost two thousand years before H.G. Wells or Jules Verne wrote about it, but interest peaked from the late 1800s when the prospect of lunar travel became more viable.

This anthology presents twelve short stories from the most popular magazines of the golden age of Science Fiction including The Strand Magazine, Astounding Science Fiction and Amazing Stories and features classic SF writers as well as lesser-known writers for dedicated fans of the genre to discover.

Moonrise: The Golden Age of Lunar Exploration is the second volume in the British Library Science Fiction Classics series.

We have many more moon-inspired homewares, clothing, books, prints and astronomy gifts. Created in response to 'The Moon', our new major exhibition at the National Maritime from 19 July 2019 until 5 January 2020.  See the full range here.
