We’re delighted to welcome Gerald Seymour. Harry’s Game, published in 1975 and subsequently made into a series for television, was an instant bestseller. Gerald has since published a book every year.
‘Vagabond’ marks a return to Northern Ireland, his first book to be set there since the Good Friday agreement was put in place. His novels are all originally researched with carefully constructed observation and brilliant characterisation.
Gerald was a reporter for ITN covering stories including The Troubles, Vietnam, the Great Train Robbery and The Munich Olympics Massacre. He featured in the Oscar winning documentary ‘One Day in September’.
Come and hear Gerald in conversation about his fascinating career, from reporter to novelist.
Sad news. It has been announced that Harry’s Game actor Ray Lonnen has died.

Ray Lonnen also appeared in the ITV drama series The Sandbaggers which was a realistic look at how the intelligence services worked in Britain during the Cold War. Highly recommended.
