Armchair fiction presents extra large paperback editions of the best in classic science fiction novels. “Brigands of the Moon” is by one of the founding fathers of modern science fiction, Ray Cummings. It’s a tale about two planets clashing over Lunar treasure. Gregg Haljan was well aware that there was a certain amount of risk in having the enormous spaceship Planetara touch down on the moon to pick up Grantline's special cargo of moon ore. For that decidedly rare metal—which was invaluable in keeping Earth's technology running—was the target of many greedy eyes. And those who desired it would certainly stop at nothing in order to obtain it. But Haljan couldn’t have figured on the devilishly special twist the clever Martian brigands would soon employ. So when he found both the Planetara and himself suddenly in Martian hands, he knew that there was only one way in which he could hope to save that precious cargo and his own secret—and that would be by turning space-pirate himself and paying the “Brigands of the Moon” back in their own interplanetary coin.
