Simon R. Green is a bestselling British author of sci-fi and fantasy. Born in 1955 in Bradford-Upon-Avon, Wiltshire, where he still lives, he has become a prolific author of his genre. He gained an M.A in modern English and American Literature at the University of Leicester, and also has a combined humanities degree to his name. Having studied history aswell, Simon R Green has an impressive academic background.

Early writing career

Simon R. Green began his writing career while a student in London in 1973, but it was not until 1976 that he sold his first story, Manslayer. It took a further three years before selling his first full-length work, Awake, Awake, Ye Northern Winds. However, it was not until 1988 that Green’s writing career really took off, when he sold a remarkable seven novels in that year. This was indeed a good year, as after three and a half years of unemployment, Green had also started working for a bookshop in Bath at this time. The following year, 1989, he was commissioned to write the novelization of the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, starring Kevin Costner, which went on to sell over 370,000 copies.

Books and Series

Since those early days, Simon R. Green has gone on to write many more short stories, plus novels that make up a number of series. The Deathstalker series, preluded by the Twilight of the Empire novellas, introduces us to Owen Deathstalker, the reluctant clan heir who must lead the rebellion against the corrupt and powerful empire, following the murder of his father. This sci-fi series comprises two parts, with the second part moving the reader forward two hundred years, as Owen’s relative Lewis Deathstalker confronts his own destiny.

Another couple of series Green wrote around the same time as Deathstalker were the Hawk and Fisher series, and the Forest Kingdom series. Both of these series are set in the same universe, and occasionally there is a cross-over of characters, but they remain distinctive in their own right. Hawk and Fisher are a husband and wife team who are the only honest guards in Haven city.

The Forest Kingdom series is set in the Northern part of the Low Kingdoms, as opposed to Haven of the Hawk and Fisher series which is in the South of the Kingdom. Beginning with Blue Moon Rising and Blood And Honour, the Forest Kingdom series sits alongside Hawk and Fisher, and features the reluctant Prince Rupert, who readers are introduced to as he sets out on a quest to slay a dragon in order to prove himself in his title.

Recent Series

More recently, Simon R. Green has added three more series, comprising of the Secret History series, the Nightside series, and the Ghostfinder series, again containing links at times to previous books and series.

The Secret History series has been so popular that the author changed the initial concept, as originally it was to be a trilogy . The books center on Edwin Drood, whose family has protected the world from evil and the supernatural down the years. Edwin himself looks after London, under his alias of Shaman Bond when not on assignment, a parody of James Bond. Edwin Drood came to dislike the tight discipline imposed by the family, and was eventually allowed to leave the Hall, the Drood family base, to live a live with more freedom.

The Man With The Golden Torc

The Man With The Golden Torc was the first book in the Secret History series, and like all the titles of the series, it is a parody of a James Bond title, in this case The Man With The Golden Gun. Things have become difficult for Edwin Drood, as the Drood family have turned against him, persuaded by one of the family that he is a problem which the world needs to be protected from. The Golden Torc of the book’s title is worn around his neck, which becomes a gold costume when he cites the magic words. This costume makes him invisible and gives him the power to fight off the evil that he has to face.

After ten years away, Edwin returns to the family base to be given an assignment by the family Matriarch, which involves taking the Soul of Albion to Stonehenge. In carrying out the assignment he has to defeat a host of nasty characters, before finding out that what he was carrying in the first place was nothing but a worthless replacement. Edwin is labelled a traitor to the family, and enlisting the help of Molly the Witch, he embarks on finding out more about the power of his family, and why someone wants him out of the way.

Daemons Are Forever

The title of the second book of the Secret History series is an obvious parody on Diamonds Are Forever, another Bond story. Readers rejoin Edwin Drood, now head of the family, with his girlfriend Molly, as Edwin decides that the family needs to show its strength following the battles in The Man With The Golden Torc. He decides to get rid of the Loathly Ones who are soul stealing and body possessing parasites. Edwin soon finds that defeating a formidable enemy while trying to manage the various elements of the Drood clan, is a difficult task indeed. So he decides to enlist a motley crew of characters to help in his quest, including Subway Sue the luck vampire, and Janissary Jane, the ultimate mercenary.

Daemons Are Forever is full of twists and turns to keep the reader hooked, and even manages to link in the story to previous books.

Made in to a film

As well as the novelization of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Simon R. Green has written the movie Judas Ghost. Set in the Ghost Finder series, Judas Ghost is about a group of ghost hunters sent to a village hall to investigate a seemingly standard haunting. However they are soon to realise they are facing something far more sinister than they had reckoned upon.
