I am really excited to share with you that my next book Uranus and Neptune is complete and heading off to the printers. Reaction Press have suggested a November release, I will update you all as soon as I know. More details about this book can be found below.
My attention has now turned back in time to prehistory and I have been putting together an updated gazette of ancient sites on Bodmin Moor called Prehistoric Bodmin Moor. This came about due to a conversation with Cheryl Straffon who produced a comprehensive guide to the sites on Bodmin Moor, which is now out of print and very difficult to get hold of. She did not want to update her book so I have put together an updated replacement full of lovely photos by myself and Jamie Ashley. It includes all the larger and more accessible prehistoric sites including the circles, rows and quite a lot more. I am hoping to have this at the printers in the next couple of months and will be selling it through Amazon online as well as having printed copies to sell through here. More to come soon 🙂
A comprehensive, accessible, and stunningly illustrated introduction to these far-off worlds.
The most distant planets in our solar system, Uranus and Neptune were unknown by the ancients—Uranus was discovered in the 1780s and Neptune only in the 1840s. Our discovery and observation of both planets have been hampered by their sheer distance from Earth: there has only been one close encounter, Voyager 2 in the late 1980s. The Voyager mission revealed many enticing details about the planets and their moons but also left many more questions unanswered. This book is an informative and accessible introduction to Uranus, Neptune, and their moons. It takes readers on a journey from discovery to the most recent observations made from space- and ground-based telescopes, and it will appeal to amateur and professional astronomers alike.
