Hi! I'm new to this community, but I have read a few of Simon Green's books.

I read the majority of the Nightside Series to "A Hard Day's Knight", but I'm missing a few due to them being unaviable.

For the Secret Histories Series, I really only read "The Spy Who Haunted Me", but I think I know the general knowledge about it.

I'm not sure about his other books, but these are the ones I've read.

...Is this comm still alive? Discussions?

Also, I don't mind Het. Pairings, but I also like yaoi. I can do art requests if it's not beyond my skill and am given descriptions.

03:53 pm - Wow, dead much?
Every Simon R. Green site I know of seem to be dead these days... and not in a good way. The Blue Moon Rising forums has some kind of server error whenever I try to do anything, which may explain why no one's posted since last year.

Anyway, I made a Nightside art group on deviantArt, if anyone is interested...

10:23 pm - Deathstalker fanfiction!
So I love Deathstalker. I also write fanfiction. (I also do fanart, but that's another story.) There's a writing community that I'm on, 6impearfics. The idea is to write six fanfics of any length past 100 words with prompts based on Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume oils. (The samples the Lab sells are called "Imp's Ears.")

I started doing some Deathstalker ones out of boredom at work, and somehow managed to finish them. So here they are: six fanfics based on the prompt list "Five Hearts and a Tear". Links in the summaries go to my writing journal, pile_of_sith. There's not a lot there other than these and a Star Wars work-in-progress.

Summaries and links under here, to save space.Collapse )

Tell me there's more Deathstalker fanfiction than this out there, people!

11:52 pm - Introducing Myself
I'm wingwyrm and I have been a fan of Simon R Green for ten years or so. My favourites right now are the John Taylor books.

I've only read the first three, because the bookstore hasn't got the others in. Ever. So I finally ordered them and they should be in by Wednesday.

BUT! I have some stuff for you guys.

1.) I have made a community for fanfic, icons, art and vids: nightsidetales

2.) I posted in my new comm, seven icons from the covers of the first seven Nightside books. If you want :)

10:51 pm - Nightside 8
There is no cover art yet, but Amazon.com has posted a  release date for the 8th Nightside book The Unnatural Inquirer. That date is January 2, 2008. Looks like this one will be a hard cover, all the other ones I have gotten have be paperbacks even thought i got them the day they came out. Anyone know why this is? 

I will post more info as I get it.

A message from Simon:

"I've finished the latest Nightside book, (currently) titled The One and Only Unnatural Inquirer, in which our reluctant hero John Taylor ends up doing a job for the Nightside's very own scabrous tabloid. The funniest, scariest, and I think most moving book in the series yet.

I'm now plotting the third Secret Histories book, (provisionally) titled From Hell with Love.
And I've sold two Nightside short stories. An Appetite for Murder will appear in Powers Of Detection II, and Some of These Cons go Way Back will appear in Cemetery Dance, in the Summer. I swear, I'm just a writing fool these days...

We are STILL this close to closing a deal over film rights to the Nightside series. The contracts have been agreed, we're still waiting for the lawyers on both sides to sign off on them."

Sounds very exciting. I so hope it all comes together but I hope to god it doesn't end up as the next Eragon.

09:18 pm - Get it yet?
I got my hands on "Hell to Pay" today. I have only had time to read a few pages, but so far it looks like Johny Taylor and the Nightside are back with avengence! It will probably take me over the weekend to finish it, since I have to work, and I can't read it at work. But I will post my thoughts once I am done.

(I am still trying to finish "Shadows Fall" I am enjoying it very much, but its taking me a while cause I always have a hard time reading 3rd person books. I don't know why, I just do. And now it will be delayed a little longer since I can't wait to read the new "Nightside". But I will post about "Shadows Fall" once I am done.)

Any one else get their hands on the 7th Nightside yet? Don't give anything away, I was just wondering how many of you picked it up yet.

10:24 am - Some details about NightSide #7
Some details about "Hell To Pay" the 7th novel of the Nightside.

The fallowing has been cut & pasted from Amazon.com just to share some info with my fellow Green fans, the review in no way reflects my thoughts on the book since it is not out yet and therefore, I have not yet read it. This info and more can be found at the link in the post about the cover art. As posted before, its going to come out on December 26, 2006
I can't wait, it sounds like its just as much fun as the other books.

Book Description
In the wake of the war that left the Nightside leaderless, Jeremiah Griffin-one of the last of the immortal human families-plans to fill the power vacuum. But his granddaughter has disappeared, and he wants John Taylor to use his special abilities to find her. Except someone-or something-is blocking Taylor's abilities.

Editorial Reviews
From Publishers Weekly
Lady Damnation, Old Father Time, a world weary Count Dracula and the hard-drinking storybook character Bruin Bear are only a few of the beings that Green produces for his seventh novel set in the sinister and psychedelic world of Nightside. None, however, are more powerful than "the Griffin," an immortal who built his empire on the carcasses of foes, who has now summoned paranormal PI John Taylor to find his granddaughter. Taylor specializes in locating lost things; his Sight—which allows him to see into other dimensions—should be ideal for the task. But when an entity in the Griffin's mansion blocks his abilities, Taylor must investigate the old-fashioned way: questioning the Griffin's family members one by one. Taylor's q&a sessions are less than thrilling, and the numerous references to the family's fearsome reputation grow tiresome. Fortunately, Green throws in a number of left-field surprises, spicing things up with an attack of fanatical nuns (called the Salvation Army Sisterhood), a bloodthirsty gangster and a DNA-stealing Charnel Chimera. Indeed, the most entertaining aspect lies not in Taylor's investigation but in anticipating what Green's twisted imagination will conjure next. (Jan.)

07:59 pm - 7th Nighside
In reply to BE-Oracle's question, and to let everyone else who many not know, know, according to Amazon.com the 7th Nightside book will be called "Hell To Pay" and it will be released on December 26, 2006
And the books are usually in the book stores around the same time.

There weren't any other details other then a nice pic of the cover. But its been my experience that Amazon.com info changes as the release get closers or changes itself so I will keep checking back and will lets yous know.

If yous want to see the cover, go to Amazon.com and search the author's name or try following this link:

06:25 pm - Nightside got me hooked.

06:59 pm - Shadows Fall

I just got my hands on a copy of "Shadows Fall" last night. Its cool so far. It really does have that "Nighside" feel to it. But so far its a little less dark. And its definitely something fun to keep me busy until the new "Nightside" comes out in the US.

Once I'm done reading "Shadows Fall", I will share my thoughts on it. But I just figured I would lets yous know that I got it, since its a difficult book get your hands on. One store tried to tell me that it was out of print. But thankfully the 2nd store had it right there on the shelf with Green's other books. Anyone run else run into this problem lately? or were the clerks at the first store just giving me a hard time cause they didn't feel like ordering it for me?

09:11 pm - Greetings

I am new to this community, but I have been reading Green's Nightside book for a few years now. And I can't wait for the next one to come to the US in December. But in the mean time I am considering picking up some of his other books. What would yous recommend to some like me that enjoys the Nightside? What are your thoughts on "Shadows Fall"? It sounds interesting to me, especially since its referenced in the latest Nightside novel. I heard that Green referenced it in some of his other books. If thats true which ones?

Am I asking too many questions? LOL!

Awaiting your replies,

08:59 pm - Character Cross Overs
With all the settings past, present and future (Forest Kingdom, Nightside and deathstalker plus the side novels) how many characters make crossovers into the others?

I know Bruin Bear and seagoat? are in the deathstalker universe and shadows fall but what about the others? I think Razor Blade Eddie makes an appearance in one of the forest kingdoms books but I'm not quite sure.

Has anybody else spotted others or any easter eggs that are rumored to be in the books?

01:28 pm - Drinking Midnight Wine
Maybe I should be kicked out of the club. I passed on the opportunity to purchase Drinking Midnight Wine at the local used book store at the low price of $2.99 -- and I've not yet read the book. It just didn't grab at me like his older books, Blue Moon Rising or the Deathstalker series.

11:31 pm - Hello :)
Hello, I'm new here.

I joined 'cuz I'm a BIG fan of the Nightside books (I actually had to dig for quarters hidden in the sofa so I had enough money to buy his latest one XP). My favorite one would have to be Agents of Light and Darkness. Razor Eddie's cool, and so's Suzie. I'm stuck reading Hex and the City right now, but I probably won't finish it until after school ends (my last week is this week, but it's also exams/final projects week, so I won't have time to read x.o). I'm looking forward to his next book!

After I finish up with the Nightside, what other Green books do you suggest I read? Simon Green's like my male Diana Wynne Jones, once I've read one of his books, I have to read them all!

Anyways, nothing else to say, I guess. I'll post up some fanart later if I have the time ;) *currently working on an Eddie fanart*

Hi all!

I just found the community, after having finished Hex and the City (I've read all the preceeding Nightside novels as well).

Who's your favorite John Taylor sidekick? Mine's a toss-up between Deadboy and Eddie.

09:08 am - Hullo! :D
Hi! I'm sorta new to Simon R. Green. I've read the 3 Nightside books that are out (Something from the Nightside, Agents of Light and Darkness, and Nightengale's Lament) and I LOVE them. They're so witty and fun, but still all dark and spookeh. I heard the next Nightside novel comes out in March. Anyone know if there's truth to this?

Also...is there any Nightside fanfiction out there? Because...I'm pretty close to suggesting the category to Fanfiction.net right now. *shrugs*

05:51 pm - Hello!
My name is Talia, and I've recently become an obsessive fan of Simon R. Green. Particularly the Deathstalker series, which I read all available books of in about the span of a month this summer. I'm unbelievably excited about Deathstalker Coda coming out, which is kind of ridiculous considering I still have several months to wait for it, but oh well.

Anyway, about myself, I'm 19, and a college student majoring in cello performance. When it comes to books, I'm a big fan of Philip Pullman, Neil Gaiman, Simon R. Green (of course) and a ton more. I'm currently in the middle of Blue Moon Rising (which is awesome so far), and am definitely looking to continue this Simon R. Green obsession when I'm finished with that. Any recommendations? Thanks!

Hi there!
This community is referred to as 'interested in "clones" '. I spent some time to find any information about clones in the latest community entries, but failed. So could anybody explain to me in simple words what way the community has something to do with clones? Thank you.

10:59 pm - Hello!
I'm glad I found this community!  ^^  I'm fairly new to Simon R. Green.  My boyfriend introduced me to Blue Moon Rising last year, and although I read that and the sequel, I wasn't quite enthralled with the author yet.  However, I've read the three Nightside books and the first Deathstalker book since then, and I've decided that Simon R. Green really is a wonderful author.  I'm looking forward to reading more by him as soon as my boyfriend lends me the rest of the Deathstalker books and Shadows Fall.  I think that's all for now.  Bye!

01:03 pm - New book
Just read the new Nightside, it was fairly good, that is to say I enjoyed everything but the end, but I'll explain that to someone who's read it. It's definatly a great addition to the Nightside series, although I am curious to know exactly who is John's mother. Or what. Usually you can look through other Simon Green novels to get an idea since he frequently reuses characters\ideas, but I have no clue. I have to abrogate this early, class

02:58 pm - Blood and Honor by Simon R. Green
If you enjoyed his Blue Moon Rising, more of the same wild adventure is found in his nonsequel followup, Blood and Honor.

Basic outlineCollapse )

I really enjoyed this effort and feel it is worthy of the time of a fan of Simon R. Green.
