In the late 1960s, NASA proposed hardware and mission parameters for an extended Apollo program that never materialized. Decades later, the existence of ice beds at the lunar south pole was discovered by NASA's space probe Clementine and confirmed by the lunar satellite Lunar Prospector . Now, author and Apollo missions historian Shane Johnson explores the fantastic possibilities of what might have transpired, had the more ambitious version of the Apollo program gone forward as originally planned.

It is February, 1975. Apollo 19, the last of the manned lunar missions, has successfully landed. Exhilarated and confident, Commander Gary Lucas and Lunar Module pilot Charlie Shepherd set out to explore a vast, mysterious depression at the lunar south pole.

There, in the icy darkness--where temperatures reach 334 degrees below zero--the astronauts search for the fragments of crystalline bedrock the scientists back home had hoped for. But when tragedy strikes, the men are driven deeper into the lethal realm, where they find much more than they bargained for, including a strange machine that seemingly transports Lucas back to a pre-flood Earth, and startling evidence that could transform mankind's perspective on all creation and its Creator-- if only the men could miraculously make their way back home to earth to reveal it.

How an author can go from writing such excellent books in his Star Wars and Star Trek books to this drivel is beyond my comprehension.

In "Ice" the author makes a point in regard to believing the Bible (you either believe EVERY word of it - or NONE of it - read "Biblical Nonsense" for extensive proof as to why, according to the Bible itself - it simply CANNOT BE TRUE) ... and then has a convoluted plot that Biblically could not happen, well, he called that accurately.

Just an absolutely unbelievable plot with a thick smearing of author's personal (and severely twisted interpretation at that!) agenda.

I am so glad that I have been able to find Mr. Johnson's books (good and bad) thru our extensive ClevNet regional network. I had read (again thru the Library Network) his VG books on technical aspects of Star Trek and Star Wars, to then try sampling some of his novel works. Wish now that before ordering those "Christian fiction" books that I had read their descriptions more fully -- and not bothered!
