The October issue of Jupiter has finally arrived.

Contained within are 5 wonderful stories by Corey Kellgren, Christopher Lockhart, R.R. Angell, Guy T Martland and Elaine Graham-Leigh. Tracy Patrick also revisits us with another thoughtful poem. Greg Hughes provides the cover artwork.

I'm sure it'll make a great gift for your loved one this christmas...

Visit http://www.jupitersf.co.uk for full ordering information.



Quote:
Themisto or Jupiter XVIII, is a small prograde irregular satellite of Jupiter. It was discovered in 1975, lost, and then rediscovered in 2000.

Themisto was first discovered by Charles T. Kowal and Elizabeth Roemer on September 30, 1975, reported on October 3, 1975 and designated S/1975 J 1. However, not enough observations were made to establish an orbit and it was subsequently lost.
Themisto appeared as a footnote in astronomy textbooks into the 1980s. Then, in 2000, a seemingly new satellite was discovered by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt, Yanga R. Fernández and Eugene A. Magnier, and was designated S/2000 J 1. It was soon confirmed that this was the same as the 1975 object. The Sheppard et al. announcement was immediately correlated with an August 6, 2000 observation by the team of Brett J. Gladman, John J. Kavelaars, Jean-Marc Petit, Hans Scholl, Matthew J. Holman, Brian G. Marsden, Philip D. Nicholson and Joseph A. Burns — an observation that was reported to the Minor Planet Center but not published as an IAU Circular (IAUC).
In October 2002 it was officially named after Themisto[6], daughter of the river god Inachus by Zeus (Jupiter) in Greek mythology.

Themisto's orbit is unusual. Unlike most of Jupiter's moons, which orbit in distinct groups, Themisto orbits alone, midway between the Galilean moons and the first group of prograde irregulars.
Themisto is about 8 kilometers in diameter (assuming an albedo of 0.04)

You changed nationality, Rhys? Shouldn't that be Pais de Gales?

(wondered why the last time I saw you you were wearing a skirt... must have been a kilt, or...?) :shock:

I always wear a kilt under my skirt, Bob, if you really need to know... :D

But yes, to the Spanish there's little difference between Wales, Scotland and Ireland. There are some things they just don't understand -- vegetarianism, for example, and curry...
How's the weather back in Wales, by the way? I heard that October turned out to be rather nice. Is this true??? :shock:

Hey Rhys,
That's almost as bad as 'belt & bracers' :)
Weather hasn't been too bad on the whole. Today (Tues) has been superb, been out with the dogs for a nice walk alongside the estuary here in Loughor where the tide was coming in and the river was full of wildfowl.
Hope that A sereia de Curitiba went well for you today.
CU
Bob

I stayed for a few nights in Chillingham Castle, Northumberland a few years ago,( scared myself half to death) and wrote down some of my experiences in the eerie place. Turned it into a story called Journal Entry which is in the halloween issue of Estronomicon from www.screamingdreams.com Should be available from the press today or certainly by the end of the week.

Will have finished Bull Running for Girls by December and then it will be rewrites and checking - then off to the publisher, Screaming Dreams. Ramsey Campbell and Simon Clark have kindly quoted on two of the stories, under news, on my web site below.

I have recently self published my first novel "The Storms of Acias". It is available through my website www.dominictook.com amazon.co.uk and whsmith.co.uk. It can also be ordered from any Waterstones store.

Blurb

Graciou takes on the storm’s ferocious nature head-on, in a battle for lives and for sorrows. It is only the perpetual intrigue and mystery surrounding his origins, and The Storm’s merciless actions, that allows Graciou to be fearless in his pursuit of an object so alien to him, one that is shrouded in a cloak of deceit and trickery.

The Storms of Acias is primarily for adults, however teenagers (14 and up) have also read and enjoyed the book.

Catch line:

The life of a great person does not start with a perfect family and a perfect life.

Life for these people starts with a Storm.

The Storms of Acias is foretold through the eyes of Graciou, a young man destined to follow a path set out for him many hundreds of years before he was born.

Genre: Dark Adult Fantasy

I am currently in the process of running events in Cheshire and North Staffordshire. See www.dominictook.com/events.html.

Testimonials for Storms:
"I believed that such a place and situation might exist, although i am a keen fantasy reader and it did mind remind me a little of the Philip Pullman trilogy."

Diane Crook

"I really admire what Dominic is doing and I know he will make a success. The publishing world is so hard to get into and these days self publishing is the only way to go. It’s a great story and people will love it."

GP Taylor

"An exciting and engaging read, with plenty to keep the reader entertained."

Richard Swancott, PR Consultant, Market Care

"I enjoyed the book so much I read it three times. I thought it was really exciting and the way it was written made me want to see if I could understand more by reading it again. I am really looking forward to the sequel!"

Jill Holt, Year Five teacher

See the event on the 12th of December, 7:45pm start. A forum of writers discussing their work from varying backgrounds, both mainstream and self published. The event venue will be the Stoke on Trent Film Theatre.
This is a two hundred capacity event.

ENDS

Dominic Took
