Out Around Rigel By Robert H Wilson

ByJohn Fitzgerald

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
On the ancient Moon, at a time when Luna was habitable and Terra a primordial cloud-shrouded planet , there is a high civilization. The narrator, Dunal, and his best friend Garth, dwell in "Nardos the Beautiful, the City Built on the Water," the water in question being that of the Oceanus Procellarum near the Grimaldi Plateau . They are both in love with Kelvar, who is Dunal's betrothed . This is a rather Barsoomian sort of high culture: they have spaceships and can build a "ten mile long adamantine bridge" to connect Nardos to the mainland, but they fight honor duels with razor-sharp two-handed swords. We don't know much about Dunal and Garth's background, save that they were schoolboys together and that they are really good swordsmen; however they have "aristocratic" attitudes and are both well-educated and probably wealthy, so we may assume that they are from their society's upper classes.
