(1942- ) US author who came to notice for two almost simultaneous sequences of sadomasochistic novels in the manner of John Norman, with which the advertising copy explicitly linked them: the Jalav/Amazon Warrior sequence, beginning with The Crystals of Mida (1982) and ending with To Battle the Gods (1986), which is set in a fabulated Amazon; and the Terrilian Sequence, beginning with The Warrior Within (1982) and ending with The Warrior Victorious (1988), which differs from Norman's Planetary Romance sequence in being set on a more plausible planet. A third sf series, the Diana Santee, Spaceways Agent sequence comprising Mind Guest (1984) and Gateway to Xanadu (1985), similarly places a proud female in situations involving Slavery and bondage, which she pretends to hate.
Green's fantasy [see selected titles in Checklist below] is perhaps less fettered, and includes the Far Side of Forever sequence, the Blending sequence, and the Hidden Realms sequence. [JC]
