"Cyrano's First Flight": Short Story Recommendation

Title: "Cyrano's First Flight"
Author: Cyrano de Bergerac
The Other World: The Societies and Governments of the Moon
Published online in Bewildering Stories

Before hot air balloons were invented, how was a person to travel to the moon and find out if there were moon men there? Cyrano finds a way.

This site is particularly recommended because of its pop-up annotations to the story, which, if you are academically minded, is a bonus.

To reach the site, just click on the post title above.
