Good-Knight, Nick is a 30-page digest-sized Forever Knight picture book, a story of a vampire and his television series, by Ann Larimer. The subtitle on the cover describes it as "Forever Knight With Lots of Pictures."

The fanzine reprints (under a different title) the story "Knighty-Knight Nick", which was originally written in 1996 as a birthday present for Susan M. Garrett. She then posted the story online for the author, who did not at the time have e-mail.[1] The story is archived at under its original title.

"Good-Knight, Nick" describes Forever Knight and its characters, and then discusses its cancellation and fan response. The story is told in the style of a picture book, and, as the instructions say, "It works best when read aloud."[2] The fanzine title is a reference to Margaret Wise Brown's picture book, Goodnight Moon (1947), which was illustrated by Clement Hurd. The cover art is an homage to the cover art of the original children's book, with the same font and composition, except that Nick's head has been substituted for the moon.

The story was nominated in the "Historic Category Vignette" section of the Forever Knight Fan Fiction Awards in 1997. It was the Bright Knight recommendation for September 2011.
