Cool Moon Stuff

This week's Carnival of Space host and "lunar librarian" Ken Murphy pointed out a cool Moon-related freebie this week. Moonwake (free PDF download) is a "juvenile" science fiction novel by Anne and Paul Spudis. I haven't read it yet, but Ken gave it a great review in its original book form in 2006.

Checking further on the web site of Dr. Paul Spudis, I found that it's a terrific resource on all things lunar. Dr. Spudis is a planetary geologist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston. His lunar experience is pretty impressive. He also has a blog, The Once and Future Moon, which is now hosted by Air & Space Magazine. His blog in turn pointed me to a new space-related blog also at Air & Space, The Daily Planet.
