Welcome to the Great Science-Fiction & Fantasy Works web site!
You have apparently come to this page from a link on a search engine or another site. If this is your first visit here, I much recommend that you take a few minutes to look over the introductory material accessible via the red “Introductory” zone of the Site Menu available from the “hamburger” icon in the upper right of this (and every) page. An understanding of the purposes and principles of organization of this site will, I hope and believe, much augment your experience here, for this page and in general. You can simply click this link to get at the site front page, which, unsurprisingly, is the best place to start. Thank you for visiting.
This is a brief discussion of Simon R. Green and, of course, of some speculative-fiction books by Green.
This discussion and list does not necessarily include every book by Green: it includes only those books that I both know and like. Just as with the author list itself, omission of a particular item may mean I didn’t think highly enough of the omitted item, or it may simply mean that I have not yet sufficient familiarity with it. (In a very few cases, I have listed some books merely on the strength of my opinion of the author: all such books are clearly marked below, as throughout these lists, with a hash mark (#) before the title so you know what’s what.)
I don’t pretend that this discussion is a deep analysis. My intent is no more than to give you a rough idea of what kinds of tales Green tells, how those tales are usually told, and what makes them and Green worthy; in sum, to help you rank Simon R. Green (and the works by Green listed here) on your personal literary “to do” list.
A Few Words About Simon R. Green
Regrettably, I have not yet had an opportunity to write an essay on this author, but the “Other Resources” section below will lead you to some information about the “Notable Books” listed farther down this page.
There is quite a bit of material relating to Green on the web, but very little that might be said to be of critical value. The foremost resource is his entry at the good old Encyclopedia of Science Fiction. Also of some help is his page at the Fantasy Literature site, with perceptive capsule reviews of a number of his books. Beynd those, there’s not a lot (but then, I daresay you don’t really need to go beyond those).
Down Among the Dead Men (Green has also written the “Hawk & Fisher” series, whose protagonists many think are those from the series above, but having taken new names; I find them less interesting than these.)
