Deathstalker. Hawk & Fisher. And now Nightside.If these names aren't familiar to you, then perhaps you haven't been spending enough time among the bestsellers. Simon R. Green has achieved what few other authors have: he's created bestselling series in science fiction, fantasy and dark urban fantasy, one after another. They run the gamut from epic to the intimate, with an emphasis on larger-than-life heroes fighting the most despicable of villains, often in the name of love.
He's also found time to write one-off novels such as Shadows Fall and Drinking Midnight Wine, which are as fascinating as they are hard to categorize. Nevertheless, they fit into the greater universe Green has been creating since 1988.
