The Sentinel (MWEB)

In the late summer of '96 a lunar expedition exploring the great walled plain of the Mare Crisium detours to investigate a metallic glitter high on the ridge of an unclimbed peak.

This story, originally published in 1951 in 10 Story Fantasy, was the partial basis for the 1968 film and novel 2001: A Space Odyssey.

This was an interesting story that unfolds slowly to a fairly dramatic conclusion, but it is in many ways upstaged by the early chapters of 2001.
