Jake Dennison is a highly educated, high-functioning, antisocial jerk. He found the perfect job, digging a mile-long tunnel thirty feet under the surface of the moon. No people to interrupt him, no inspectors to second-guess him, and no bosses with the guts or capacity to fire him.
And then things went south. Other inhabitants of the base on the surface started moving down into the “tube.” Whole families showed up on the shuttles. Mind-numbing discoveries were made that would change the course of human existence. Some people even wanted to be his friend. And a whole litany of, in Jake’s view, other crap like that.
This is the story of the first colony on the moon and of the explorers who chose to call it their “forever home.” The narrative is outrageous, apocalyptic, funny, tear-jerking, and so real it could happen next year, or next week.
Strap in for a wild ride.
