The Prime Minister is the Hand of Pluto

The Benin Bronzes
Just after the Full Moon, on 18 February 1897, a British expeditionary force breached the great walls of the city of Benin, capital of one of the wealthiest kingdoms in West Africa.  An orgy of looting, murder and arson ensued. The city was razed, its priests were executed, and the Oba, the [...]

Amanda Gorman: On Fire
I was wondering how the Mars-Uranus conjunction — that fiery, combustible, dangerous pairing — would manifest on the day of the inauguration. And then Amanda Gorman, Youth Poet Laureate, stepped onto the platform and began to declaim. She looked fantastic, like a queen from a [...]

The Best Book on Asteroids
A few weeks ago, I wrote about the asteroid Hygeia and mentioned that little work had been done on the asteroids in general. What is more, there’s a lot of really woolly thinking available for you to unravel around the internet. Most of it is all theory or wishful thinking, or just [...]

Australia’s House Is On Fire
Baking winds, sulphurous skies, raining cinders, the roaring; the trembling air, the red smoke, giant tongues of flame lashing the landscape, devouring trees and buildings. Fleeing animals, fleeing people, blankets of ash, a pall of smoke… The images of the bush fires in Australia have [...]

August Asteroids
Taking a quick look at what the asteroids are up to at the moment. Juno, Pallas, Ceres and Vesta move slowly enough to have serious impact, and quickly enough to be entertaining. Getting to know your asteroids adds a little turmeric and chili, ginger and garlic to your horoscopic stew. [...]

Notre Dame: She Will Rise Again
Notre Dame, the great church of Our Lady in the heart of Paris, at the sharp end of the Ile de la Cité, burned spectacularly last night. One of her spires pointed a flaming finger at the sky. She crackled, she roared. But today she’s still standing. The images were shocking, of course. [...]

Deep Magic, Fire: The Gates of Winter
Bonfire Night, November 5, was perfect this year — cold and crisp and clear. It gets dark now by about 5.30, and we walked over to the bonfire field through dark streets lit by sulfury orange streetlights. The field very dark, except on the far side where the bright yellow flames from the [...]

Hillary Clinton, Dragon-Slayer
This American election is an archetypal battle, the stuff of fairytale or legend. The two sides line up, accusing each other of hatred, lying and lasciviousness; of baseness, vileness, bestiality. In their vagueness sometimes, the smears require a leap of imagination from the public. What’s [...]
