Lagniappe: Arthur C. Clarke and Reader's Digest

I believe this [A Fall of Moondust] was probably Reader's Digest's first essay into science fiction, but I have never been able to bring myself to sample the result -- not because I fear that the Pleasantville editors may have butchered my deathless prose, but because I'm scared they may have improved it.
