I suspect that this interview would be interesting even if it turned out to be his penultimate or even antepenultimate one, as Mikhail Tal was invariably fascinating, witty and intelligent when communicating with the public.
Topics include Mikhail Botvinnik (on their matches and computer chess), Bobby Fischer (including a self-undermining remark about what Tal would not mention about Fischer lest he expose him to unfair criticism), Garry Kasparov, the phenomenon of future world champions almost all growing up without their fathers, and Viktor Korchnoi and matters parapsychological.
One amusing quote illustrating his wicked sense of humor:
A couple of years ago I've [sic] been to Argentina, and one local grandmaster told me that he recently played blitz with Fischer, and "can you imagine, Misha, he won all the games!" Then I learned that you don't have to be Fischer to do that!
Ouch. I should add that while it's funny, Tal rarely took shots at opponents in print, generally speaking graciously of his opponents. So this is a rare exception, and it should be noted that he left the grandmaster's identity a secret.
