Answer: A flash in the pen.
If you missed the sunrise at Stonehenge today, don't worry. The unicorn would like to invite you to the launch of Authors Electric's fiction anthology "A Flash in the Pen", which involves a unicorn and possibly some naked dancing around a virtual standing stone (optional).
Katherine's story is called The Last Maiden (because of the old wives' tale that only maidens can lure unicorns out of the enchanted forest) and was first published in the British Fantasy Society magazine "Dark Horizons" back in 1995. That was before ebooks, and before many online magazines too. It had black-and-white artwork printed on real paper and looked like this:

The story even had its own full-page illustration in the magazine:

There are many other stories in this collection from many different writers - historical, crime, literary, fantasy, romance - most of them aimed at adults, so please don't give this one to younger readers. But if you're a YA reader (or, ahem, a bit older) and want to sample some different authors, then this collection could be a good taster.
currently 99p for the launch
