Minnie and Earl

A novel by

Who are Minnie and Earl?

In the earliest days of constructing the first permanent colony on the moon, they are the single secret shared by the everyone working on the project: two friendly old people, who somehow beat the astronauts to the lunar surface and are perfectly happy with hosting the kids to nightly dinners, but remain close-mouthed about who they are and how they got there.

But they are not the strangest thing to be found on the moon.

Three entries from Adam-Troy Castro's Nebula-nominated series feature some of the adventures stemming from this extremely weird period in the history of lunar colonization. Get ready to find out about the explanation that doesn't matter. About the first gunfight in the history of lunar colonization. About the strangely familiar couple doing pratfalls out in the lunar wastes, where only one deeply confused team engineer can see them. And about just what Wyatt Earp has to do with all this.

Don't be afraid. You can always drop on and Minnie and Earl for advice.
