Story Summary:
(Taken from Amazon)

Set in the not too distant future, a worker hopes that his new job at the spaceport will allow him to get his life back on track. While taking passengers to the space hotel "Moonwalk", a collision with an unknown object brings his dreams... and possibly his life... to a screeching halt.

Mandy's Review:


The sun, planet and the vastness of space give a literal interpretation of what the reader may find in the short story.

Plot/Main Characters

Instead of losing a job, Dan Cooper had been reassigned to a new position.  He assisted those traveling to the new space hotel, located on the moon.  The majority of the passengers are celebrities who are going to have fun and to party in a new location.

On their way, a collision occurs and everybody is knocked out.  Will they make it to the Moonwalk hotel?  Will they find out what they collided with?


The story seems realistic in the depiction of people traveling to a hotel on the moon.  With the way our society is, it wouldn't surprise me to learn that there are people already working on how to get this scenario to happen.

The ending after the collision was expected.  I would have gotten more enjoyment from reading a different outcome.
