It is with the greatest of pleasure that I can unveil the front cover of The Day Without Yesterday. This is the third and final novel in The Sky’s Dark Labyrinth trilogy.

The Day Without Yesterday will be available in February. You can order the book online from Waterstones, amazon, and The Book Depository.

The book will also be available in your local bookshop. For those within striking distance of London, you can be the first to own a signed copy as I will be at the European Astrofest signing the very first copies of the books off the presses.

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Justin Trottier for The Star Spot podcast.


From their website:
“Dr. Stuart Clark joins Justin Trottier at The Star Spot to share his unique work dramatizing the great stories of science. Clark combines his background in astrophysical research with his career in science journalism and writing to author a trilogy of novels that focus on the lives of the great minds of astronomy, from the Trials of Galileo to the personality conflicts between Isaac Newton and Robert Hooke, to the discovery of the Big Bang by Einstein, Lemaitre and others. Clark also discusses his blog for The Guardian called Across the Universe, and shares his insights into teaching critical thinking and how to use the history of discovery to deepen the public appreciation and understanding of science.”
