Synopsis: Book I of the Moonbase Saga, "Moonrise" is the story of the development of the first permanent human settlement on the moon, from its beginnings in the mind of one brilliant, driven man to its amazing reality. Bold new technologies are developed to sustain life on a harsh and unforgiving frontier. The human personalities and passions that drive the project are explored - as well as the rivalries that threaten to destroy it.

Review: Ben Bova has a way of writing hard science fiction that can best be described as "definitive." While other writers introduce technology that could be developed under the right set of circumstances, Bova tends to write about advances that we're already capable of, if only we pursued them. In Moonrise he describes a future where space has finally been privatized and the moon is on the brink of becoming fertile commercial ground. But even as former astronaut Paul Stavenger seeks to turn a handful of leftover government moon shelters into a full-fledged moonbase, powerful corporate forces are aligning against him.
