On the Moon is a blending of pure fantasy ( lunar beasts carouse through the pages ), and sound scientific conjecture (the work abounds with sound information on actual lunar conditions as they are now known to exist ). This blending of a fantasy that covers the spectrum from wild to almost plausible, with scientific reasoning that covers the spectrum from almost plausible to impossible, was to become the trademark of the bulk of Tsiolkovsky’s writings.
