THE MAD MOON

THE MAD MOON

for STANLEY G. WEINBAUM.

One of THE greats of Science Fiction....

Wrote incredibly HUMAN tales...

One, "The Mad Moon", takes place on IO, as you see in the photo ABOVE...

IO is one of the moons of Jupiter. The inhabitants of Io experience only TWO NIGHTS in a solar year...Two periods of darkness yearly...Io is constantly bathed in the lights of JUPITER, EUROPA, CALLISTO, GANYMEDE....

If there is teeming LIFE in the pitch black of the bottoms of our oceans feeding on chemical SUNLIGHT, then there is LIFE aplenty on the surfaces of worlds like IO and all the rest of the moons of Jupiter, where there is rarely NIGHTFALL or any darkness at all...

Weinbaum's tale is one of COLONIZATION of the moons of Jupiter, Io as a world of lush vegetation and rat-like, bat-like intelligent creatures that undermine the works of Man and the formerly dominant inhabitants of ruined, incredibly CITIES....

Weinbaum died young, 34 years old, from cancer, or he'd not have been forgotten.....

His works live on.....
