Recently I was surprised to discover on Amazon Ben Dykes' translation of Abu Ma'shar's The Great Introduction to the Science of the Judgements of the Stars. I'm on Ben's mailing list but hadn't received a notice of this new publication. Checking Ben's web site, it's not there either. Apparently Covid has delayed upkeep of his web page and other publication matters. But the book is here for those who have been waiting for it, as usual with Ben's helpful and instructive Introduction and notes. (624 pages)

Another piece of important news I never saw any notification on is that Benjamin Dykes has started his traditional course. However, its only with a select group of students sampling the draft course.
