Reading List – A Fall of Moondust

More for the reading list: A Fall of Moondust by the late Sir Arthur C Clarke.

Science fiction used to be my main reading material but not so much in recent years. I am sure some other works in that genre will make my list but I wanted to note this novel, which I borrowed from the library after the author passed away and I realised that I had very little first hand experience of his work.

It is classic science fiction, with a plot that works its way through several scientific problems. In that it provides a contrast with many more modern works on the sci-fi shelf, which might have grander ideas but less solid footing. It is a sparkling little story and, as well as entertaining me, gave me insight into why Clarke earned his good reputation.
