Letter: Terry Coleman obituary


I owe a particular debt to Terry Coleman. When I began out as a contract author, I used to be writing comedy, however my second e-book bombed. My agent, Murray Pollinger, advised a change of course and requested me what was the e-book I had learn not too long ago that I needed I had written, to which I answered Coleman’s The Railway Navvies.

He advised I ought to attempt to write one thing comparable, and the end result was The Canal Builders, printed in 1972 and now in its fifth version. I’ve been writing in regards to the historical past of expertise and transport ever since – because of Coleman’s inspiring e-book.
