Publisher Description

High-concept science fiction, deeply human characters, and a weirdly wonderful story drive The Moons of Barsk, Lawrence M. Schoen's audiobook sequel to the award-winning Barsk: The Elephants' Graveyard Years after the events of Barsk: The Elephants' Graveyard, the lonely young outcast and physically-challenged Fant, Pizlo, is now a teenager. He still believes he hears voices from the planet’s moons, imparting secret knowledge to him alone. And so embarks on a dangerous voyage to learn the truth behind the messages. His quest will catapult him offworld for second time is his short life, and reveal things the galaxy isn’t yet ready to know. Elsewhere, Barsk's Senator Jorl, who can speak with the dead, navigates galactic politics as Barsk's unwelcome representative, and digs even deeper into the past than ever before to discover new truths of his own.

Combines excellent characters and a fascinating world. What really makes it work is how he deftly weaves together startling SFnal ideas with character-based intrigue. You'll really care for these characters, even as you find them believably alien. I found it a compulsive page-turner and immensely enjoyable.

— Karl Schroeder, author of Lockstep 


  • For Barsk:

  • Weird, wise, and worldly, Barsk: The Elephants' Graveyard is a triumph.

    — Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Red Planet Blues
  • The second you encounter the arboreal uplifted elephants who speak with the dead, you know you're reading a work of singular imaginative power. It's a delight from beginning to end.

    — Walter Jon Williams, Nebula Award-winning author of the Metropolitan series
  • A captivating, heartwarming story in a unique and fantastic world... as rich and mysterious as Dune.

    — James L. Cambias, author of A Darkling Sea
  • A heartfelt and wonderfully weird book: a space opera about kindness and memory.

    — Max Gladstone, author of the Craft Sequence
  • A masterful, onion-layered tale of pariahdom, treachery, and genocide that ultimately reveals the true deathlessness of hope and love.

    — Charles E. Gannon, author of Fire With Fire
  • Powerful. Grand in scope, yet deeply intimate. Schoen gives anthropomorphism some serious spirituality. It got inside my head in the way that only an exciting new idea can.

    — Howard Tayler, Hugo Award-winning creator of Schlock Mercenary
