Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic science fantasy series of lunar romance, adventure, and dystopia continues…
After a century of war, all Earth was at peace at last, and friendly communication had been established with the planet Mars. Interplanetary co-operation made possible what neither world had been able to achieve alone — ships to bridge the distance between the worlds. But The Barsoom, the first Earth-Mars vessel, was treacherously sabotaged, thrown off course, and obliged to make an emergency landing on the moon. And there, beneath the craters, at the interior of the arid satellite, the crew found a world cut off from the rest of the solar system, inhabited by warring monsters, and the decaying remnants of an ancient civilization.
Through the treason of a handful of men, contact between Earth and the Moon had become a nightmare. The world became the tool of the Kalkars, whose plundering and cruelty reduced thriving nations to poverty stricken wastelands. The Moon Men is the astounding story of that tragedy, and of the exploits of Julian, the human who dared fight for freedom. It is the story, also, of Red Hawk, Julian’s descendant, the nomad who attempted to bring the struggle to its final desperate conclusion.
