Seymour Slideshow: Robert Seymour drew thousands of pictures. Above are eight examples, including the suicide-themed Better Luck Next Time.
But the biggest thanks of all, by far, goes to my wife, Elaine. Without Elaine’s unwavering support, Death and Mr Pickwick could not have been written. She backed the novel from the moment I told her the concept - not only by being the sole breadwinner while I was writing, but on occasions by making important suggestions for the text, and by helping with research. I can never thank you enough, Elaine, for everything you have done, and for being the incredible, extraordinary, wonderful you.
