New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green returns to the "bizarre and gleefully dangerous backdrop" (Jim Butcher, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Dresden Files) of the Nightside with this landmark collection of short fiction.
Welcome to the Nightside. It's the secret heart of London, beating to its own rhythm, pumping lifeblood through the veins of its streets and alleys hidden in eternal darkness, where creatures of the night congregate and where the sun is afraid to shine. It's the place to go if you're looking to indulge the darker side of your nature-and to hell with the consequences.
Tales from the Nightside presents ten macabre mysteries that shine a dim beam into the neighborhood's darkest corners to reveal things that should never come to light. Take a walk with such deadly and dangerous denizens of the Nightside as Razor Eddie, Dead Boy, and Larry Oblivion as they encounter things even more inhuman and inhumane than they are. And join John Taylor, the PI with a knack for finding lost things, as he confronts Sir Francis Varney, King of the Vampires, in a never-before-published novella-length adventure.
There may be nothing to be afraid of in the dark, but there's plenty to be afraid of in the Nightside...

"A worthy addition to the nightside world!"
For fans of the nightside series, this book will not steer you wrong! It has a one-shot featuring the origin of Larry oblivion,Razor Eddie and His Origin, the story of how Dead Boy came to be, (this story is a reprint) and, of course, what collection of nightside stories would be complete without the further adventures of John Taylor, including novella that seems to take place sometime after the bride wore black leather! For all fans of the nightside, you'll DEFINITELY want to get this!
"The night side: a nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to stay."
More night side please! For fans of the series this is a treasure trove of the things that make the series special. I would not recommend this for people new to the series.
"Read the series first"
Read the series first then come back to hang out with old friends. Get to see the Nightside from other perspectives.
"Awesomely cool new stories !"
Narrator is very talented !
Stories were inventive and used the characters I care about and know in exactly the way they would handle the situations ! Loved every second !
"The Missing Pieces"
Classic Nightside style and finally the origin stories of Dead Boy and Razor Eddie as only Mark Vietor can narrate it.
"Tales is a winner."
It was great to revisit some old tales and get new as well. Worth the credit!
The new story. Was great to get a lead into it with the old tales. It made it that much better.
His distinctive voices and familiarity with the world makes you feel the Nightside is only a misstep away.
With my busy and hectic schedule family and work it was nice to have this broken down and be separate stories for me. I would have loved to do it all at once but for me Tales was great bite by bite.
Simon R Green is a master at his craft and Mark Vietor does his world justice. This is well worth a credit. My only hope is that Tales of the Hidden World is coming to Audible soon as well.
"R (maybe even a touch of X) rated Goosebumps."
I bought this audio book when offered as a daily deal. Was it wrtten for chilren? Perhaps adolescents? I wonder. The naked people and brief but unnecessary descriptions of genitalia seems a bit graphic for the young, but honestly, I pictured a slightly weird teen as the author. Too much sex reference for the young, too much nonsense for the adult. Can't recommend it to anyone. Sorry.
"Always a fun story"
lots of fun simon r green just nows how to entertain and tell an exciting story
"It's trying to be witty but missing the mark."
Kudos to the narrator however. Excellent job there. I found the stories repetitive, dull and at times derivative. For those who compare all urban fantasy to Jim Butcher-this is in no way in the same league. Not even close.
the stories are great! still some clichés per usual but overall a fun collection! Loved Razor Eddie's story the most. Harry Fabulous 's story was predictable. Larry Oblivion's was sad and made me understand him better. Deadboys story was so much fun but also sad. I love the parts about his car! The last story had some strange twists, and it was hard to predict (which I love)!
