|Pan SF paperback, 10th printing, 1976. Cover painting|
by Dean Ellis (thanks: Mark).
"The setting is the Moon in the 21st century and it is depicted with brilliant imagination.
But the vital core of the novel is this: will the crew and passengers of the Dust-cruiser 'Selene', buried fifteen metres down in the Sea of Thirst, be rescued before half a dozen possible catastrophes overcome them?"
