Two New Simon R. Green Novels

At the end of 2014 and the beginning of this year, Jo Fletcher Books started releasing Simon R. Green‘s back-catalogue in the UK as eBooks. Today, we can share the information about the two latest additions: PROPERTY OF A LADY FAIRE and TALES FROM THE NIGHTSIDE.GreenSR-SH8-PropertyOfALadyFayreUKe-BlogPROPERTY OF A LADY FAIRE is the eighth book in Simon’s bestselling Secret Histories series. Here’s the synopsis…

Call me Drood, Eddie Drood. Some know me as Shaman Bond and most simply don’t want to know me at all. For centuries, my family has been keeping the things that lurk on the darker side of existence as far away as possible from humans like you, without you even knowing we’re there.

Unfortunately for us, not everybody appreciates what we Droods do. Recently, I personally managed to survive yet another attempt on my life, but the rest of my relatives weren’t so lucky. My parents are missing in action. My grandfather has been murdered. And the future of my family lies in the iron grasp of the Lady Faire, an incredibly seductive, mysterious, and powerful being.

She possesses an ancient object that can save them. I have to steal it from her. Easy enough to say, difficult — and very, very dangerous — to do…

GreenSR-N13-TalesFromTheNightsideUKe-BlogTALES FROM THE NIGHTSIDE is a collection of short stories set in Simon’s New York Times-bestselling Nightside urban fantasy series…

Welcome to the Nightside. It’s the secret heart of London, beating to its own rhythm, pumping lifeblood through the veins of its streets and alleys hidden in eternal darkness, where creatures of the night congregate and where the sun is afraid to shine. It’s the place to go if you’re looking to indulge the darker side of your nature—and to hell with the consequences.

Tales from the Nightside presents ten macabre mysteries that shine a dim beam into the neighborhood’s darkest corners to reveal things that should never come to light. Take a walk with such deadly and dangerous denizens of the Nightside as Razor Eddie, Dead Boy, and Larry Oblivion as they encounter things even more inhuman and inhumane than they are. And join John Taylor, the PI with a knack for finding lost things, as he confronts Sir Francis Varney, King of the Vampires, in a never-before-published novella-length adventure.

There may be nothing to be afraid of in the dark, but there’s plenty to be afraid of in the Nightside…

Both of these titles are available now. Simon is also the author of, most recently, THE DARK SIDE OF THE ROAD, which was published in the US last week by Severn House, who also published the novel in the UK.

We reported a little while back that Jo Fletcher Books is re-issuing a number of Simon R. Green‘s novels in the UK as eBooks (hurray!). This Thursday, two more Tales of the Nightside novels will be available: JUST ANOTHER JUDGEMENT DAY and THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UNCANNY (books nine and ten in the series). Here’s the synopsis for the former…

Judgement Day has arrived for the inhabitants of the Nightside, and here to cast the first stone is God’s very own agent of righteousness, the Walking Man.

The sole mission of the Walking Man is to eradicate sin and corruption from the Nightside. The trouble is that’s exactly what the city was built on; it’s a place where depravity rules, and where every dark desire can be fulfilled. If the Walking Man is allowed to carry out his indiscriminate purge, there’ll soon be nothing – and no one – left.

So the Authorities have hired private detective John Taylor to stop him. Easier said than done; it is believed that the Walking Man can’t be killed. But surely he must have a weakness? John Taylor certainly hopes so; but if he doesn’t find it soon, he – along with the entire Nightside – must face God’s wrath.

Here’s some of the praise the novels have received…

‘In this ninth Nightside novel, Green takes readers into the very seediest, most disturbing parts of John Taylor’s world and casts a harsh light on human depravity. Although scenes containing graphic depictions of child abuse may put some readers off, Taylor is an amiable protagonist who is, increasingly, the moral center of the Nightside, and his slowly growing relationship with the damaged Suzie Shooter is one of this book’s highlights.’RT Book Reviews on JUST ANOTHER JUDGEMENT DAY

‘Bloody, brutal, stylized, extremely over-the-top, wildly inventive and always entertaining, the Nightside series has become a guilty pleasure, the sort of series that hits a great many of my Awesome Buttons. The Nightside is one of a kind.’SF Site on JUST ANOTHER JUDGEMENT DAY

‘The ripping, suspenseful and wry 10th tale in the Nightside series proves every bit the equal of Jim Butcher’s better known Harry Dresden books… Longtime fans and first timers alike will applaud Green’s blend of fantasy, mystery, and humor.’Publishers Weekly on THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UNCANNY

‘Taylor’s snappy wit and quick thinking make for another exciting Nightside volume.’Booklist on THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UNCANNY

Simon R. Green’s NIGHTSIDE Returns to the UK!


We’re delighted to report that the first eight of Simon R. Green‘s Nightside novels are once again available in the UK! The novels have been re-issued by Jo Fletcher Books as eBooks. The final four novels in the series, as well as Simon’s Secret Histories series, will be published over the next few months, and we’ll bring you news as-and-when they become available.

Here’s the synopsis for the first Nightside novel, SOMETHING FROM THE NIGHTSIDE

John Taylor is a private detective. At least that’s what his business card says, and it isn’t completely untrue: Taylor is a private eye – or rather, he has a ‘private eye’, a supernatural ability to find anything that is lost. As a child of the Nightside, it’s an ability he was born with.

But it’s been a long time since Taylor left the Nightside – that hidden netherworld in the middle of London where it is perpetually 3 a.m., where fantasy and reality co-exist – and he has no intention of returning.

Then Joanna Barrett arrives at his office; her teenage daughter is missing and she is offering a small fortune to find her. Yet it’s not just the money that persuades Taylor to take on the job, for he knows exactly where the girl has gone…

The Nightside. And to save her, Taylor must do what he vowed he never would, and once again descend into the hellish depths of his home.
