Tomorrow, 1 August, sees the hardcover publication of the new Gerald Seymour novel The Corporal’s Wife.
In addition the next four paperback reissues are out, namely Condition Black, The Fighting Man, The Waiting Time and The Unknown Soldier.
Well, it feels a little like Christmas today because Santa, a.k.a. the Hodder publicity department, has sent me a nice new hardback of The Corporal’s Wife and a copy of the paperback reissue of Harry’s Game. They will look very fine on my Gerald Seymour shelf.
And suddenly the 1 August release date for The Corporal’s Wife does not seem that far away. In fact it’s just three weeks from today.
By the way, if you haven’t already done so I recommend you check out the official Gerald Seymour Facebook page where there are weekly updates from the man himself.
I’ve added a new forum to the site. You can find it on the menu bar above or follow the link here:
The forum is under the old name of the page, i.e. The Art of Danger. Within it you will find sections for a number of thriller authors including Gerald Seymour.
So get posting!
The book includes a foreword written by Robert Harris (author of Fatherland) for the 20th anniversary of Harry’s Game, which would have been in 1995. To be honest I was unaware that Harris had written that foreword. It’s a bit of a shock to realise that almost another 20 years have passed since he wrote it.
Harry’s Game is out in paperback and Kindle e-book. More reissues follow later in the summer.
I was fortunate enough to receive an advance reading copy of The Corporal’s Wife from Gerald Seymour’s publisher Hodder books and I am very pleased to say that after thirty books there is no sign of a drop in quality of his writing. Indeed it is one of his strongest books in recent years, even rivalling the exceptional A Deniable Death (2011). You can read my full review on the new page for The Corporal’s Wife.
Just another reminder that The Outsiders is out in paperback in the UK today. (So far I’ve already spotted it in my local ASDA at a bargain price.)
Update – its also in Tesco.
Another update – also in Sainsburys for just £3.49.
And when you’ve read it why not add your comments to the The Outsiders page on this site.
