The Moon's Last Fortress
by Christopher Bulis
Young teen Tom Mallory (self-admittedly hopelessly infatuated) should have known better when the object of his desire, Amber Cavendish, unexpectedly invited him to write an article for their school newspaper on her famous scientist fatherís latest invention. She warned Tom it might involve a little travel, but he had no idea that meant a weekend trip to the moon in an improbable backyard spaceship named the Eclipse! But things go wrong on the journey, and soon the crew of the Eclipse are lost in an alternate reality where they encounter the legacy of an ancient conflict with a dark alien intelligence that laid to waste an entire solar system. If that were not enough to worry about, Tom still has Amberís eccentric father and a possible rival for her affections to contend with. Can Tom convince Amber that he is more mature than he appears by being a hero, which he most definitely is not? Can all the science fiction heís read possibly help them survive? And can he get his homework finished by MondayÖ
