These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Simon R. Green
Vanilla Protagonist: The protagonists are interesting but the supporting cast is more so. He frequently populates his worlds with colorful and over the top characters, taking a moment to give their backstories in an impressive way and then display them doing something awesome. His main characters tend to be powerful, but a little more grounded. Thus highlighting the lovable weirdos around them.
