Today marks the publication of the first reissue of one of Gerald Seymour’s novels by Hodder books. Appropriately it is his first book, Harry’s Game.
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.
