Welcome to the worlds of Simon R. Green! In this wide-ranging collection, Green revisits the ingenious worlds within worlds that he created for his wildly popular novels.
Take a stroll on the Darkside with a jaded street wizard, an underpaid government functionary responsible for keeping demons, vamps, and aliens in line. Enter the hidden recesses of Drood Hall, where the aging family member who creates powerful weapons that protect humankind recalls his long and bloody career. Join a squad of no-longer-human soldiers dispatched to combat the all-consuming jungle on a distant planet. Visit a house at the intesection of two realities that serves as a sanctuary from the evil of all worlds. Confront the unstoppable zombie army of General Kurtz in a brilliant homage to Apocalypse Now. And whatever you do, never forget that there are monsters out there. Really.
Simon Green’s Tales of the Hidden World is available July 8th from Open Road Media. Below, check out an excerptfrom “Quantum of Solace,” a brand new story of the Droods!
