It seems to be fairly standard to put your first post in here, so I thought I'd do that.

I also thought I'd cheat slightly, as this seems to be one of the more posted in sections of the forum, by asking a couple of quick questions.

Anyone know if there's a really comprehensive collection of what SRG's written?
Wikipedia is a decent starting point, and this site includes a few of them, but I've discovered a variety of short stories I didn't know existed until five minutes ago here:
http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/ea.cgi?1454

Is there one catch-all spot I should be looking in to keep track of all these?

And really off-topic, and possibly too personal; anyone know how long it took for SRG to make a living off his writing?

Cheers,

Kingfisher

Hi and welcome.

There is no full listing of all Simon's work anywhere. There will be once I have time to put one together (it was on the 2011 start of the year plan, but life got in the way).

As to 'how long it took for SRG to make a living off his writing?'

He became on 'over night success' after 17 years of trying!

Blue Moon Rising was rejected by just about every publisher out there.
He sent it finally to one of the big US literary agents. They advised a few changes and then sold it. On the back that they sold the Hawk and Fisher series and by chance they were looking for someone to write the book of Robin Hood and he got that 'because he was a Brit' !

So, he sold 7 books in a year from nothing. Go figure, pure luck in some respects.
