In conversation with Gerald Seymour and Terry Pratchett

Today I stumbled upon a transcript of a talk that Gerald Seymour did with the late Terry Pratchett back in November 2001. I thought it might make interesting reading as we await the next novel.

You can find the transcript at

Just a spot of context. 9/11 had just happened and the most recent Gerald Seymour book published was his 20th, The Untouchable, in August that year (if I recall correctly).

It is interesting to see Gerald Seymour say he had no idea where things were going after 9/11. Pratchett also mentions Gerald’s previous novel Holding the Zero and makes reference to a movie about a sniper called Enemy at the Gates which was out that year.

I’m just stunned that 2001 was 14 years ago! How on earth did that happen?
