Classic FM Radio Interview

6 minute interview discussing all things Wilbur Smith. The reason why there isn't a "contact me" option on his official site is also explained...
“Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people.”

Thanks Matt. WS's Web site is getting bigger and better all the time.

I like his explanation about his retirement. "...retirement in small doses".... Re writing a new book every two years. I was pleased to hear he also still has lots of ideas. :D

Did everyone pick up on his changed 'new book commencement date'? It was 6th Februrary. Now it is 11th January which is two days after his birthday. I assume the 'two days after' is to enable him to recover from his Birthday celebrations. Next one will be his 75th :!:

Yep that was a definite Tye-ee-ta in there this time!
While a tiger eyed its prey and an eagle raged in a thunderous sky a river of darkness fell upon a burning sun and the wolf cried tis a time to die, thus did the angels weep as power and triumph in those golden eyes did creep.
