W hitman Publishing Company added a Major Matt Mason title to their line of “Big Little Books” in 1968 with the publication of “Moon Mission” by George S. Elrick. The plot centers around the strange disapperance of Captain Otto Harvey, who had been manning an outpost prior to Matt Mason’s arrival on the moon. In transmissions to Earth, Captain Harvey appeared to be going insane, reporting strange “squeaking” noises, and then disappearing all together. Mason is joined in his rescue attempts by Sgt. Storm and by JoAnn Harvey, the only female character to ever appear in the Mason universe.

Elrick’s writing is very mature for a book intended for children, and the story moves along at an exciting pace. Collectors today can often find copies of the book at antique book stores, flea markets, and other venues. Copies in mint condition can command prices as high as $25 dollars. A fair increase from the original price of $2.00!
