Publisher’s Blurb – Dust Jacket Flaps
Maurice Gray and Bruce Talbot have an unexpected visitor to their Mars satellite, Deimos, where they keep their lonely watch on Mars.

It is now ten years since their escape from near catastrophe on Earth and their return to the Red Planet, as told in The Voices of Mars.

In these ten years the Martian colony has grown out of all recognition as compared with the early days when Maurice and Bruce made their first, never-to-be-forgotten journey to rescue Dr. York.

How Maurice, Bruce and their unexpected visitor receive a desperate SOS from the Lowell Dome, what terrifying experiences they undergo in an attempt to reach the dome, is now told in this latest addition to the famous series by the well-known television and sound broadcaster.

Patrick Moore has been interested in the possibilities of space travel since his boyhood, though his main interests are in the field of pure astronomy.

During the war he served in the Royal Air Force as a bomber navigator, and for the last five years has concentrated on writing. His popular scientific books include The Boys’ Book of Space (translated into French and Italian), Guide to the Moon, Guide to the Planets (both originally published some years ago, and now re-issued as paperback editions), Guide to Mars, a popular survey of what is known about Mars itself, and The Boys’ Book of Astronomy.

He is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, Director of the Mercury and Venus Section of the British Astronomical Association, as well as being associated with many foreign societies.

He is well known to millions on account of his monthly astronomical programme on BBC Television, The Sky at Night.
