Update from editor Allen Ashley: “I am delighted to announce that three more Zodiac signs are sewn up for Astrologica: Stories of the Zodiac. I have accepted the following:
“Aspects of Aries” by David Turnbull (Aries)
“Star-crossed” by Stuart Young (Gemini)
“The Sun and the Moon” by Bob Lock (Gemini)
“The Prize” by David McGroarty (Pisces)
“The Fishman” by Mark David Campbell (Pisces)
The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that I have taken two for Gemini (naturally!) and also two for Pisces, which will deliver a big, fishy finish to the anthology. You might also have spotted that it seems to be a good time to be called ‘David’!
