Hey All:

I'm here because, like you all, I'm a huge fan of Simon Green's books. I've already made a couple of posts in the Secret Histories forum, and figure I should probably flat out say I'm still a huge fan of Green, even if I've spent two posts trashing "The Spy Who Haunted Me." Sorry Simon - NOT GOOD.

Anyways, I'm glad to find this community. As a suggestion, should we maybe work on an actual Facebook page (or does he have one) rather than the Wikipedia link that's currently up there now?

Finally, a testimonial, and why I'm such a fan (just very critical). I'm a law student - I haven't read fictional books since junior high, and have found Green's books to be the most refreshing novels I've ever read. Despite the problems that I've outlined (and the ones that a few other people have suggested as well), I think Green is one of the most original writers out there right now, and creates books that are witty, dark, and absolutely page-turners. Simon, you've reintroduced my tired, boring brain to reading for fun, and I'm glad to find out just how many more books you've got out there. So, thank you, and please don't take offense to my criticisms (even if I hated "The Spy who Haunted Me.").

Hope to see you all around!

Yes, there is a Facebook page--it's called "The Worlds of Simon R. Green" and I'm already there, under the name "Sara Petersen". I would be glad to see you there as well!
