Rebel Moon is a sort of "libertarian revolution on the moon"
novel co-written by WorldNetDaily columnist and notorious blogger
and award-winning sci-fi writer Bruce Bethke. We have acquired what we believe
to be the last remaining stock of NEW copies, SIGNED by both authors.
If you love Vox Day and want a signed copy to use as the centerpiece of your Vox Shrine, here it is. If you hate Vox Day and want to buy a copy just to burn it, we're okay with that, too. In any case we're selling them for just $7.50 USD apiece, domestic shipping included, and when these are gone there are no more.
Before anyone gets too snide about Star Wars and Star Trek novels, it's
worth pointing out that even Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke wrote movie
novelizations, and even Gene Roddenberry's
original Star Trek TV series was beaten in the
ratings wars by Irwin Allen, producer of such mind-stretching programs
as Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, The Time Tunnel, and of course,
Land of the Giants.
Ergo, here we have an outstanding artifact of Science Fiction's "Brass" age: a First (and probably only) printing of a 156-page novella written by authentic Golden Age great Murray Leinster, credited as being based on the series created by Irwin Allen, but quite possibly based on one of Leinster's own screenplays as he was a prolific scriptwriter who worked under a variety of pseudonyms. The book is not exactly museum quality; in 1968 the concept of using acid-free paper in a 60-cent paperback was not even a dream, so the pages have turned a nice, crispy tan the color and texture of perfectly toasted Wonder Bread. Also, as you can see from the larger scans of the front and back covers, sometime in the intervening years a young lady named "Susie" chose to decorate the covers (but luckily, not the interior) with pencil.
Still, as a kitschy relic of what life was like before the market ascendance of Star Wars and Star Trek, this one is hard to beat.
