The Moon Pool has one advantage over the original short story. More wildly colorful imagination, like frogmen, a dragon worm, and such "silly" stuff, that none of us can refuse.

Or rather, that was the quality of "The Conquest of the Moon Pool", the second part of The Moon Pool.

I wish both stories will eventually be printed together in their original form. It has never been done before.
