A recurring theme in Simon's (and most other people's) work is conflict. In particular, fights.

My question to you all is this:

What is your favourite, Simon Green authored, fight scene of all time?

Tough call. In the Nightside series I always liked the scene where Sinner, Madman, and Pretty Poison helped John to take on the Harrowing in "Hex and the City". Eddie Drood fighting his Uncle James in "The Man with the Golden Torc" was the most interesting conflict of the Secret Histories series. However, SRG's single best fight scene was in Lionstone's court in Deathstalker War, especially when Owen and Giles draw steel against each other. Truly epic!

My favourite is from The Good, the Bad and the Uncanny (book 10 from the Nightside series). The final battle between John and Walker.

What's your favourite fight scene btw Luc?

My favourite fight scene? It'd have to be in Blood and Honour, when Gawain is challenged by the hired duellist (whose name I forget :o :oops: :o ).

Mind you, I think most of the best fight scenes come from the Forest Kingdom series.

The best huge combat was the battle for Mistworld in "Deathstalker War". A duel between characters, I think that emotionally the battle between Finn Durandal and Douglas was well-written, even if not really intense. I also love the battle in which Valentyne slayed the gang which has killed his favorite cook in the original "Deathstalker".

Definitely the Deathstalker War scene in Lionstone's court is up there. If nothing else because there's that great comic relief part when Giles shoots the clone of Dram in the head.

I think it depends on what I'm interested in at the time. A full-on brawl would have me go Deathstalker, a cerebral take down is Taylor's trick once the bad guy beats him up a time or two, and a classic has to be from out of the Forest Kingdom books.

Most epic was probably Razor Eddie vs the Walking Man 8-)

Taylor vs Count Video because physical humor is the best(Taylor kicks Video in the nuts)

The fight between the two blade masters in I think it was Down Among the Dead Men was awesome as well. Strangely I really didn't care for that book, just that one scene.

Who was the second blade master? I remember only Gil the Dancer and I love the book...
