The stories in the four volume Classic Moon Stories series continue the pattern established in the two previous anthologies published by AfterMath: the seven volumes of Classic Mars Stories and the three volumes of Classic Venus Stories.
Volume 1 of the Classic Moon Stories series contains the following complete works:
“Moon Lore,” by Timothy Harley
“Are the Planets Inhabited?,” by E. Walter Maunder
“Trips to the Moon,” by Lucian of Samosata
“The Discovery of a World in the Moone,” by Michael Sparl and Edward Forrest
“Moon Lore” describes many moon-related religious beliefs and superstitions.
“Are the Planets Inhabited?” is a somewhat pedantic speculation that many more recent advances in scientific knowledge have shown to be impossible.
“Trips to the Moon” is the earliest known work to describe a visit to the Moon.
“The Discovery of a World in the Moone” is, in the words of the authors, “a discourse Tending to prove that ’tis probable there may be another habitable World in that Planet.”
