Fields of Orion II: The Mission is Part 2 of the trilogy, picking up where part 1 left off the plot thickens and readers are taken further into this new bewildering world.

Stars of Orion was inspired by astronomers who follow me on Twitter, where I roleplay as Orion the Mighty Hunter @warrior_orion

During Spring 2021 I assembled a lovely Collection of photos by these astronomers for my Orion blogsite. Then I decided to put together, host and publish a beautiful book of photos and stories of my Constellation, released at the height of the Orion winter season show!

Fields of Orion was inspired by the bomb disposal operators and army veterans I've had the honour and privilege to know and work alongside. I have combined this amazing experience with my knowledge of terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, and a passion for space exploration, alien visitation, Greek legend, and the music and imagery of David Bowie
