Fragments is written by an astronomer who started a revolution in amateur astronomical imaging. This book is not just about that story, but entwined within it is how he became friends with the iconic astronomer, Sir Patrick Moore and how on occasions, they worked together, how it all became an astronomical adventure, and how Patrick influenced him, as he has so many others. Like all adventures, this one had to come to an end. The Grim Reaper had been held at bay for so long, but always prevails in the end. This adventure is set among other writing and recollections that come from the heart and mind, sometimes sad or pensive, other times purposeful and focussed. Memories of childhood have been translated into a short story and a poem, and other poems range across, the astronomical, the artistic, the whimsical and war.
