Simon R. Green

in Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire, England, The United Kingdom
August 25, 1955




Simon Richard Green is a British science fiction and fantasy-author. He holds a degree in Modern English and American Literature from the University of Leicester. His first publication was in 1979.

His Deathstalker series is partly a parody of the usual space-opera of the 1950s, told with sovereign disregard of the rules of probability, while being at the same time extremely bloodthirsty.

News for November 2016.


Hi everyone,

Just a small update.


I’ve finished the latest Ishmael Jones ‘Death Shall Come’. And it’s been sent off.

I’ve been reviewing the notes for Night Fall, which I’ll be starting next.  Now, when I plot a book it normally runs maybe 10 to 20 pages.  The rough plot for Night Fall runs…. 47!  I did joke at one point that it might run to 1000 pages. Maybe that’s not so much a joke now!
