Happy Solstice… this morning’s picture of Stonehenge courtesy of a NASA photographer –
There is much mystery surrounding Stonehenge – where the stones came from, why did they build it, what connection if any does have with other stone circles around Britain and so on.
Indeed stone circles are not unique to Britain, but I find it interesting they are concentrated in northern Europe. There are certainly enough unanswered questions to write about Stonehenge in science fiction.And yet oddly enough it is difficult to find.
One notable exception is The Secret of Stonehenge by Harry Harrison first published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, June 1968.It has since been reprinted many times and translated into several languages.
I must admit it is about time the science fiction canon had more stories… the itch to write within me is!
