"Moonbase is little more than a dream. A privatized former government lunar project, it consists of a dozen cramped, interconnected 'temporary' shelters buried below piles of regolith rubble. But ex-astronaut Paul Stavenger envisions the majestic domed city Moonbase must inevitably become: a bustling center for manufacturing and scientific development vital to the interests of the Earth and all humankind. Yet only his wife, Joanna Masterson Stavenger, has the power to derail the corporate opposition that could dismantle the financially troubled installation to which her husband has dedeicated his life and future.
The Moon and its mysteries have captivated the Stavengers -- and it will continue to exert is mysterious power on the family through subsequent generations. For in the gray lunar dust, battlelines are to be drawn between innovative creators who would mine the heavens for its riches . . . and craven destroyers ruthlesslyt dedicated to enacting a nightmarish nanotechnological revenge somewhere on the merciless scorched expanse of the Mare Nubium."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
