  • Colonel Pyat

    Was the Pyat quartet intended to be set in the multiverse that is the backdrop for other works? I only ask because of the reuse of names like Von Bek and Cornelius.

    I would say, in so far as any fiction can be set in our world then the Pyat novels are, but that our world, which of course is a fiction, is part of the multiverse.

      Hi Mike. Iirc, Colonel Pyat first appeared in the Jerry Cornelius stories as the owner of shop in Ladbroke Grove, then Mike took him and wrote the Between the Wars stories about him later.
      You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

        And of course all of the different versions of people in Jerry’s world address questions of identity, including who people “really” are. As I recall, Pyat’s versions of himself are far different than Jerry’s version of him intentionally.
