MOON FLIGHTS by Elizabeth Moon, dj art by Dave Seeley. SanFrancisco, CA; Night Shade Books; 2007. 1st edition hardcover.
Over the past two decades, few authors have garnered the critical acclaim and fan following of Elizabeth Moon, Nebula Award-winning author of The Speed of Dark, The Deed of Paksenarrion, and Remnant Population.
Moon Flights, the definitive Elizabeth Moon short story collection, represents the highlights of an impressive career. Gathering together fifteen tales of fantasy, alternative history, and science fiction, Moon Flights features an original story, “Say Cheese,” set in the Vatta’s War cosmology, and an all-new introduction by Anne McCaffrey, legendary creator of the Dragonriders of Pern series.
Ranging from humorous high fantasy tales of “The Ladies’ Aid & Armor Society” to gritty, realistic chronicles of far-flung militaristic space opera, former marine Elizabeth Moon’s storytelling mastery and eye for painstaking detail is evidenced in each of the tales contained herein. When honor, politics, and personal relationships clash against backdrops of explosive battles and larger-than-life action, the result is the breathtaking and astounding fiction found in Moon Flights.
