New story in Aquila magazine

I'm delighted to say those fabulous people at Aquila magazine have published one of my short stories in their bumper July/August issue. The story Time's Wing'd Chariot is about Josh, a boy who is finding it hard to settle in, since his family moved to Worcester to make a fresh start. Thomas, an eccentric old man Josh meets in Cafe Republico, seems a bit crazy - but is there a grain of truth in his story of 'intelligencers' from the 17th century?

For those of you who haven't yet discovered Aquila - it's a fun magazine aimed at children between 8 and 13 who enjoy challenges. It reminds me a lot of Look and Learn - a magazine I used to enjoy when I was that age.
