(Brock, Pope) Pope Brock is a writer, teacher, DJ, and  the author of Indiana Gothic, about the murder of his great-grandfather; Charlatan: America’s Most Dangerous Huckster, The Man Who Pursued Him and The Age of Flim Flam, about the most successful quack in American history. His articles have appeared in GQ, Esquire, Rolling Stone, the London Sunday Times Magazine and many other publications. Another Fine Mess: Life on Tomorrow’s Moon (Red Hen Press) explores the many ways in which today’s scientists, entrepreneurs, architects and, yes, a few loonies are working to get colonies established on the moon. Filled with research, interviews and expert projections, Another Fine Mess reveal how a web of fantastic new technologies could give mankind a brand new start off-world. But, Brock asks, if we’re given a second chance on the moon, will we use it to create at last a sane and peaceful society? Or will we make a desperate hash of things all over again?
