The Mighty Hunter
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
Welcome to the website of Orion the Mighty Hunter!
Orion. You know me as a magnificent constellation of stars in the winter skies: a giant hunter etched in the cosmos. I am instantly spotted by the geometric perfection of the three stars on my Belt.
So during the stargazing season of 2021, I invited Astronomers and Astrophotographers to showcase their beautiful photographs of my stars in a special Constellation Collection.
This was such a success that I compiled and published a beautifully illustrated book featuring photographs and stories by 45 astronomers of my Constellation:
Stars of Orion: An Astronomy Special
The ebook became available on Amazon in November 2021 – as I returned for my Winter Season in the night sky.
The Paperback edition is available from the Book Depository
and on order from your local bookshop
on Amazon as an ebook
The Paperback is available from Amazon
Along with stunning photos of my beautiful stars and nebulae, Stars of Orion features personal stories and Guest Essays from amateur & professional astronomers.
There’s a host of fun facts for super soaraway stargazers of all ages – how, where and why they take wonderful pictures of me – and technical details on how to best view me in the skies.

I have captivated stargazers and astronomers through the generations since the time I lived, loved, and hunted in Ancient Greece then made immortal in the heavens in eternal glorious luminescence. There are many versions of my tumultuous life and untimely demise: I am the Schrödinger’s Cat of Greek mythology: multiple states, multiple stories.
So my memoir is being rewritten as a rip-roaring science-fiction thriller:
Orion: The Hunter’s Story
Coming soon on Amazon in 2023.

I first appeared in modern form in the first of a gripping trilogy of science-fiction novels written by my scribe in 2019:
Fields of Orion (I): An Odyssey. amzn.to/33ObWLy
The second in the trilogy Fields of Orion (II): The Mission was published on October 15, 2020 in Kindle & Paperback on Amazon – to mark my annual Orionids meteor shower – where the story begins… https://cutt.ly/0gjjidf
