There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch!

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, originally published in 1965, is a tale of the rebellion of the former Lunar penal colony against the Lunar Authority that controls it from Earth. It is the tale of the disparate people -- a computer technician, a vigorous young female agitator, and an elderly academic -- who become the rebel mnovement's officers. And it is the story of Mike, the supercomputer whose sentience is known only to this inner circle and who for reasons of his own is committed to the revolution's ultimate success.

Reader's Note: While there is no "sex as such" in this story, the main characters are part of a "group marriage."
