This page is a listing of novels in the Resident Evil franchise.


S. D. Perry series

For more information about the book series, see S.D. Perry series.

Simon & Schuster acquired the rights to publish novels in 1998 and assigned writing to Stephani Danelle Perry on the advice of their first choice, her father Steve Perry. Elements were lifted from the games out at the time, along with other written works and some story notes delivered from Capcom. As the novels were being written with no direct input from Capcom, differences between the two universes became more and more significant.
