The Sword Guy Podcast episode 66

Sebastien de Castell lives a life of music, adventure and swordplay. He is the author of the Greatcoats series, which is full of sword action, and the Spellslinger series, which features magic finger guns!

In this episode we talk about how to write a great sword fight for stage, screen and literature, including these two classic scenes:

The first duel in The Duellists

Sebastien’s ulterior motive for coming on the podcast was to ask Guy’s opinion on how a rapier might be modified to contain a pistol. Have a listen and see if you agree or have a better idea of how it could be done.
