New Release – ‘Pirate’ – 16th March

My new book, ‘Pirate’, the sixth volume in the Aurigan Space Saga is now available for pre-ordering from Amazon

“Undercover agent Liam Connell stared at his captor. He looked like a pirate from a holovid— black trousers, a white, puffy-sleeved shirt, and a purple sash wrapped jauntily around his waist. Wavy black hair fell to his shoulders and … Connell couldn’t believe it. He actually had gold hoops hanging from his ears. The pirate ran his forefinger lightly down Connell’s cheek and smiled. “Mmm! Mmmm! What do we have here?”
Just what had Connell gotten himself into? (M/M Romantic Sci-Fi) ”

Epsilon Aurigae

Epsilon Aurigae – Post 2

 

Epsilon Aurigae is what is known as a variable star – that means its brightness fluctuates for us on Earth. Current research suggests that this is due to the ‘star’ being actually two stars, one a yellow supergiant and the other a smaller star which occasionally eclipses the larger.

‘Almaaz’, is the Arabic name for this star and it derives from an ancient arabic word ‘al-ma az’ meaning ‘billy goat’, corresponding to the Latin Capella which means ‘nanny goat.’ In Western astronomy, most star names derive from Arabic, Greek or Latin and in fact many are translations from one of these languages to another.

Almaaz is the name I have chosen to use in my stories, it features in His Guilty Secret and in Lunar Affair.

Auriga

All my stories are set in the Aurigan constellation. The stars I have written about are real, although the planets and the Patrol are, of course, all my own invention.

The Aurigan constellation can be found in the Northern Hemisphere near Gemini and Taurus.

Auriga is Latin for ‘charioteer’ and it was named because of its resemblance to a charioteer’s helmet. Like all constellations, you have to use your imagination here! In western astronomy, the constellation was recorded in the 2nd century by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy. (Wikipedia provides lots of information about the history of the constellation in other cultures, if you are interested in further reading.)

The brightest star in the constellation is Capella, which is the sixth brightest star in the sky and about 43 light years from Earth. Although it looks like a single star to us on Earth, it is actually four stars, two sets of binary pairs, stars which orbit around each other.

I plan to post more short pieces about the different stars in my books over the next few weeks.

However, if you would like to read more about the constellation, you can check out wikipedia or http://www.constellation-guide.com.
