He's talking about Laurell Hamilton I think?

Never read any of the GreWalker books or others by that author. Would the Simon Green Nightside books be of similar ilk?

The Nightside is more epic (archetypes and suchlike). Greywalker is more 'normal' - closer to Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series. At least the two first (the only ones I've read).

I agree, although Small Favor seemed a bit flat to me.

I'm a fan of Jim Butcher, but I have to admit I can't keep up with the books. he's been a very busy guy the past two years. Check out the graphic novel if you can--it's Butcher's current fave project and it shows! (He does the writing himself.)

Simon R. Green is a bit more interested in archetypes than I am, but in terms of feel I think there are some similarities. And he's a genuinely odd guy, so you gotta love that all by itself. The new Nightside cycle is kind of like James Bond goes to Hell and Gets In Trouble than the previous cycle, IMO.

Laurell is still the reigning queen of the genre, but she's not writing what she used to. Take that how you will.

Okay, I've read most of her books.

I might have been a bit unclear there.
I've read all of Nightside and Otherworld, but only the two first of Greywalker.

So far, I'd say that Greywalker is about a normal person being dragged into weirdness, whereas Otherworld is about a kinda normal person walking by themselves into weirdness, and the Nightside is just plain weird.

Whereas I have read all of Otherworld, some of Nightside and none of Greywalker.

Hmmmm....I think I just found my new reading material.


BTW, Kim Harrison I liked. Anita Blake is way overrated (I won't be reading those again).
