Sleeve shows 'RUSSELL GRANT'S ZODIAC' in large letters at the top, giving the impression that this is an album by media astrologer Russell Grant. But in much smaller letters at the bottom, it says 'Russell Grant's Complete Album Of Sun-Signs Symbolised In The Music Of Duncan Mackay'. In fact, Russell Grant has no input at all into this record - apart from the photos on the front and back of the sleeve. The music is completely instrumental, with no vocals other than wordless interjections and sighs, and is therefore to all intents and purposes a Duncan Mackay solo.

Zodiac really takes the who House thing seriously. Like, Russell took our zodiac signs and personified them to the max. Its so cleverly insane that the storyline and all of its characters work really well together. I knew after finishing ZODIAC I would need a few days to figure out what I wanted to rate it and after thinking, discussing with friends, and discussing the book with the author, Romina Russell, I decided on a 4/5 star. This book really transported me into a world I haven't read before. This world is big, and I can't wait to see what some of the other Houses look like in future books.

At the dawn of time, there were 13 Houses in the Zodiac Galaxy. Now only 12 remai. mbark on a dazzling journey with ZODIAC, the first novel in an epic ntasy series set in a galaxy inspired by the astrological signs. At the dawn of time, there were 13 Houses in the Zodiac Galaxy.

Grant was a central figure in the circle of artist and writers known as Bloomsbury, which included Grant's cousin Lytton Strachey, Maynard Keynes, Roger Fry, Virginia and Leonard Woolf, Virginia's sister the painter Vanessa Bell and Vanessa's husband the critic Clive Bell. Grant and Vanessa Bell were closely associated in their professional and personal lives for more than fifty years. A retrospective of Grant's work was held in 1959 at the Tate Gallery, with subsequent Arts Council tour. He was given a retrospective at Wildenstein & C. Lt. London in 1964, a two-person show with Bell at the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol, in 1966, an Arts Council tour in 1969, and solo shows at the Anthony d'Offay Gallery, London, in 1972 and 1975. In 1975, in honour of his ninetieth birthday, exhibitions were held at the Tate Gallery and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

The card inner sleeve has 12 character descriptions of each star sign, presumably written by Mr Grant.
