We have, for generations, projected our political and spiritual longings onto our closest celestial neighbour: the Moon. So much so that she been a talismanic home to science fiction's most ambitious dreams for generations. In Luna: New Moon - a novel by science fiction legend Ian McDonald - the moon is both beautiful and terrible… the moon is both deadly and dramatic

This week, on Invisible Cities, join Uma - and special guest Ian McDonald - for a tour of the omnisexual, kinky, violent, passionate, beautiful, awful, vibrant, and crushing… moon.

Show Notes:

i. Be sure to check out some other great works of science fiction set on the moon. Namely Robert A. Heinlein’s “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress” and Arthur C. Clarke’s “A Fall of Moondust". 

ii. If you’re looking for some non-fiction… well… then you can’t really go wrong with Andrew Chaikin’s “A Man on the Moon” or with Tom Wolfe’s “The Right Stuff”.
