Anthony D. Thompson


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."

Smashwords Interview

Why did you write this book?
To use a novel to highlight certain characteristics of the human race and the resulting unavoidable nemesis.
Could you explain the message of your book in one sentence?
Yes. We, the members of the human species, need to change what we are and consider more closely the disgusting, brutal and stupid things we are doing to ourselves and to our planet, before it is too late - unless, of course, it is already too late.

What would you do if you met a businessman in a London coffee shop who made you a ridiculous offer of €500,000...merely for you to participate in a series of interviews? Would you assume the offer to be that of a deranged person, a fraudster or a joker? And irrespective of that, for €100,000 in advance and non-returnable, would you attend an initial meeting? Well.....would you?
