Discussion is now open on Rogue Moon. Ropie contributed a few questions to kick us off:
1. I saw Rogue Moon as a somewhat disjointed mix of hard science fiction, philosophy and melodrama. To what extent did you find the mix of styles worked together?
2. Budrys keeps the action on the moon very conspicuously in the background until near the end. Did you find this intriguing or annoying?
3. David Pringle calls Rogue Moon "one of the first really modern, modern sci-fi books". What the hell is he on about?
4. Did you find Barker convincing as the 'man's man' and hero?
5. What did you think of the complex process of copying and duplicating required to send versions of the men to the moon? What about the even more complex psychological and philosophical implications of this?
