The author describes his novel, 'The 2084 Precept', as a philosophical mystery. He is an Englishman but dislikes nationalistic (or as some prefer to say: patriotic) tendencies and describes himself as a European. He flits around those countries with whose languages he feels comfortable: Spain, Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland and the U.K. - and more or less whenever he feels like it. He also ventures further afield, but only from time to time. Fate appears to have turned him into a rootless human being - not a state of affairs he strongly recommends - but hey, you can't have it all.
Anthony lives by the motto: "Life, basically, is time. And if you believe that time is the only thing we humans really possess, then the only rational thing to do with it is enjoy it."
