- The New Guy In Moon Base Twelve
on March 13, 2012
Tom Litchtenberg has a funny story in this little novel. I giggled to myself several times as I read through it. When a surprise visitor ends up in the moon base, it’s not only how the residents react to the visit that is funny, but the set up of the entire situation. Tom has a slanted view in this work of the future and the politics that govern it. From the race to beat the Chinese in building a moon base, that has no other reason to exist then getting there first, to the odd qualifications of the residents, it is obvious that a lot of pre-planning and thought went into the storyline. (Unless Tom actually thinks this wacky!) In a quirky way the story holds together and is plausible only because the characters fit into the setup so perfectly. I throughly enjoyed it!
