Newcomer to the forum, but not to the books. I sent an e-mail to Mr. Green a few years back, saying some of what appears below, but I feel the need to say this again--and to express my gratitude publicly.

Thank you. I struggled for more than a few years trying to get my own fiction published, and all that time, the work of a select group of authors shaped my own writing style and inspired me to keep trying. Your books--specifically the Hawk & Fisher series, which represents most of your material that I'd read at the time--were high on that list.

I'm not the most successful author as of yet; certainly not anywhere near being a bestseller. But I've been published, now, by a couple of major publishers--and I'm not exaggerating in the slightest when I say that, without Simon and the other authors who inspired me, I'd never have gotten here.

I've continued devouring your books since then--the Forest Kingdom books, the Nightside, the Secret Histories--and as long as you keep writing them, I'll keep reading.
