S.F. Masterworks, Fiction, Science fiction

Described by Robert Silverberg as containing 'The most terrifying pages in any SF novel I have ever read', ROGUE MOON is the disquieting story of what happens when monstrous scientific ambition is matched by human obsession.

Shortlisted for the 1961 Hugo Award, ROGUE MOON is the disquieting and story of what happens when monstrous scientific ambition is matched by human obsession.

The moon has finally been reached and on it has been found the most terrifying structure, which kills men over and over again, in torturous, unfathomable ways. Clearly, only a mad man or a suicidal maniac could explore its horrible secrets.

All his life, Al Barker has toyed with death. So when the US lunar programme needs a volunteer to penetrate a murderous labyrinth, alien to all human comprehension, Barker's the man to do it. But what is required of Barker is that he withstand the trauma of dying, not just once, but time and time and time again
