Apollo 11, a spaceflight forever cemented in history books, signifies the moment when humans first walked on the Moon. Since that historical day, the US has been the only nation to set foot on the Moon.

But what do you do if someone says this event wasn’t real? Conspiracy theorists have always been on the fringe saying the Moon landing was an elaborate hoax, a clever story fabricated in great detail by our government or space agency. But what if — somehow — historical records were changed to show the Apollo 11 mission never happened? In Moon Hoax, a new and entertaining historical fiction novel, author Paul Gillebaard re-writes history with a tale of high-tech subterfuge and deceit played out on the world’s stage.

Currently in 2013, the USA is certainly not the only space faring nation. With the retirement of the shuttle program, we can’t even launch our own astronauts into space. Other countries have a core of trained astronauts and collaboration between nations has become a key mode of operation. Teamwork has become a necessity. The International Space Station circling high above our heads is inspiring proof of countries working together in space research. What if one country wants all of the glory for themselves? What if they have engineered a way to change the face and records of space travel as we know it?

Moon Hoax weaves the tale of a rising and formidable superpower country trying to take away our historical facts and show them as false. One of the most populated countries on Earth wants the world to think the United States of America lied and has been lying to them for over 40 years: the twelve amazing American moonwalkers never were. Not only do the antagonists want to rewrite the history books, but they want to stake their claim on the Moon and launch themselves into the annals of space and world supremacy status.

Twisting the truth into an extremely plausible lie is a challenge. Moan Hoax will consistently have you reacting with a range of emotions from dismay and frustration to determination in seeing the truth prevail. It’s a race to prove to the world that the history books are factual versus the changing tide of a public dissuasion campaign. The author, Paul Gillebaard, has substantial space knowledge and an engineering background. This first time author adds a writing flair to make the reader question history’s validity on an enjoyable, entertaining ride.

    In the near future, the conspiracy theorists will quote from this work of fiction as proof we never landed on the Moon.

  2. From aliens & UFOs to a false moon landing.
    The human imagination is bewildering.
    No wonder we attract UFOs: they must think
    that the Earth is a circus and better than
    satellite TV.
    Personally I could not be bothered to read
    such a book for the same reason as mhollis.
    What we really need is a world wide bull effluent filter
    and especially over most political and media centres.

    Supposing that it is impossible to land a man on the moon as the deniers suggest.
    Then why didn’t the Soviets take the credit for getting there first? They successfully landed unmanned vehicles (Lunokhods) on the Moon. It would have been a huge propaganda victory for them to show that the Apollo landings were faked.

    As the author, I feel I need to clarify that Moon Hoax is a
    pro-landing book (sorry for the deceiving title). I’m a huge fan of the moon
    landings (and Apollo). This book honors this great achievement and the
    thousands of men and woman who made it happen. Many prominent space folks have enjoyed the book, even a moonwalker. Charlie Duke of Apollo 16 called Moon Hoax, “A
    fantastic read!”

    Sorry guys but uhm…. didn’t the Mythbusters prove the moonlanding as real already?

      They showed that some of the hoax believers’ claims were incorrect. That’s not quite the same thing. The correct proof would have been to replicate the trip to the Moon and back, but they probably didn’t have the budget for that.

    Boooring. Look, of course China, as the next economic superpower, will be considered a threat to US no stupidly matter what. That is exactly why this line of histories, from the Yellow Scare to the Nazis to the Cold War and on and on, is so … yawn … humdrum, spent, trivial.

    I wouldn’t touch that subject with a long pole. It’s literary, and literature, poisonous. (Oh, I’m sure it has its redneck public. Sigh!)

    But mostly: Been there, done that.

  7. I don’t think the folks commenting here have actually read the book. It is NOT claiming we didn’t land on the moon. Just the opposite….China is trying to make it look like we faked the landing to discredit us. There is a whole interesting story with a MULTITUDE of space facts wrapped around the fact that we DID land and how they are trying to prove it. Try reading it before you criticize it. You guys are way off base here!

  8. From the comments, it sounds like people are misinterpreting Moon Hoax as being a conspiracy book, but it’s not. I’ve read it and it is 100% a pro-landing book.
