Six great moon novels

Accompanying his essay "Curse You, Neil Armstrong!," writer Ted Gioia offers a list of "six great moon novels."

One novel on the list:
From the Earth to the Moon
by Jules Verne

Is Jules Verne the father of science fiction? Too bad they don’t have a DNA test to settle this paternity case. With an offspring so successful, there is no shortage of candidates seeking custody.
Read about another novel on Gioia's list.
