Johan Harstad’s Norwegian Brage Award winning young adult novel 172 Hours on the Moon (originally titled DARLAH in its native language) is a science fiction / horror story that takes place in 2019, the year that marks the 50th anniversary of the original moon landing. To celebrate this historic landmark NASA has decided that they want to schedule a return trip to the Earth’s lone satellite, but of course when they finally do, things don’t go quite as planned. This basic premise does make one stop and wonder about which of Harstad’s ideas is more unlikely: that NASA will ever go back to the moon for some reason, or that they’ll even still exist as an organization in 2019.
