Today I’m honored and thrilled to have Simon R. Green on the blog! Simon is the author of the Deathstalker series, the Nightside series (one of my faves), the Secret History series, and much, much more! He’s here to talk about writing, acting, and the daring thing he did on stage (you’ll never guess what it is!). Also up for grabs is a copy of For Heaven’s Eyes Only (Secret History Book 5) to one lucky winner (please see giveaway deets at the bottom of this post)!
Please welcome Simon to the blog!
Out of your multiple series, do you have a favorite, or one that you enjoyed writing the most?
Blue Moon Rising is still my favourite, I think mostly because so much of the characters and story are autobiographical; if expressed in fantasy ways. And then there’s Shadows Fall, about a small town in the back of nowhere, where legends go to die when the world stops believing in them. Sort of an elephant’s graveyard for the supernatural. I think that’s my best written book, and a whole lot of fun. But really, my favourite book is always the one I’m working on Right Now.

Urban noir fantasy hits a high note with this new number of Simon R. Green’s Secret Histories series. In For Heaven’s Eyes Only, Eddie Drood and his witch paramour Molly Metcalf are up to their ears in evil plotting Satanists. Like other books in this series, For Heaven’s Eyes Only possesses a slightly twisted 007 style. In fact, its hero has been rightly hailed as “a hard-boiled, fast-talking, druidic James Bond and its title is a hat tip to Ian Fleming’s For Your Eyes Only. A nice fit for fans of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files.
