Northwest Smith embarks on a dangerous trip to learn the secrets of the moon and a lost civilization.excerptqI'll bet you the next drinks, q murmured Yarol, his wise black eyes twinkling under long lashes, qthat you can't guess what race that little fellow's from, or where it originated.qqThe next drinks are on me anyhow, q grinned Smith. qNo I can't guess. Does it matter?qqOh-curious, that's, all. I've seen a member of that race only once before in my life, and I'll bet you never saw one. And yet it's an Earth race, perhaps the very oldest.

No, don't laugh; it's supposed to be something very strange and wonderful, which their race life is dedicated to keeping quiet. I'd give a lot to know what it is, just for curiosity's sake.qqNone of your business, my boy, q said Smith sleepily.qLike as not it's better for you that you don't know. These secrets have a way of being uncomfortable things to know.qqNo such luck, q Yarol shrugged. qLet's have another drink-on you, remember-and forget it.qCatherine Lucile Moore.
