Great to meet Thraxas again!BTW: Why costs the new Thraxas EUR 2.99 and the old ones EUR 4.61+? I don't understand.
My ex boyfriend ordered the American Edition (I like the cover best)for me on internet and I should get it next week(am in Italy). Ex-boyfriends sometimes are not as useless as they seem to be..most of the time! Dani
... can I take it as a compliment ?The Ex
I'm overal not too happy of the demise of message boards in general, aswell as the lack of simple things. Nowadays social internet stuff is overly complicated - you can't join up anything without first having to enable, disable, invite, unfriend and upgrade a whole pile of stuff.An ex-boyfriend can be a great friend and company if a relationship didn't end in anger but in agreement. Saves me having to go alone to concerts. Anonymous's given me an idea how to obtain Martin Millar books after all.
Thank you for writing it Martin. I've been waiting too long. I'm sure it won't take me too long to read as I always seem to plough through your books whereas the other book I'm reading has taken me just over a year rather ironically it's the idiot. Maybe I am. It's hard to explain to people in this the age of vampires that you have so little in common with the others.Happy Gaming etc...Simon
I just finished Curse of the Wolf Girl and absolutely loved it! There are so many characters and layers and subplots and just WAY too many things to keep you interested :) I sincerely hope you continue on this series for a long time to come and wish you all the success there is for your writing. I hope I'll be able to keep reading about all those crazy MacRinnalchs for a long time.

Amazing writing as per usual, I have enjoyed all I have read of your work. I do hope there will be more werewolf stories to come. Its hard not to gush about how great these books are, but I am so close to finishing Curse of the wolf girl that i know i will be begging for more as soon as i am done.
Hello Mr. Millar, I'd like to ask you something. I really like all of your works, but the "Thraxas"-books are my favourites by far. Therefore I'd like to know, if there's a chance that you write some more about everybody's favourite overweight-detective.RicoP.S. Sorry for my bad English ^^' Greetings from Germany
I'm a bit of a nerdy collector of signed copies from my favourite authors.Any chance of you selling signed copies of your books from this site as you do for LWG?
I'm sorry, I don't have any signed copies this time.
Rico, I plan to write a ninth Thraxas book, and probably publish it as an ebook. Whether that will be translated into German, I can't say.
Дуже чекаю нову книгу про Фракса (Thraxas) Greetings from Ukraine.
I am looking forward. ))) Greetings from Ukraine.
Damn... I'm excited! Thanks so much Martin, my hopes had almost perished along with Thraxas in that bloody boat... :)Greetings from the land down under, by the way.
Luckily, the book stores in Oslo are quick in getting the new titles in. I´ve just finished Curse of the wolf girl and loved it too! Thanks for writing about Kalix! :D It is so refreshing and nice to read this after reading so many stories about vampires and were wolves which all use the same elements and are so alike. I have totally fallen in love with your world in this books.Thanks :)
Just curious, are you going to release curse of the wolf girl as a ebook in U.S.A.?
I want a signed Kalix.Hallo,ich bin der Chris und komme aus dem schönen Köln in Deutschland.Tja, wie bin ich auf deine Bücher gekommen?Eher zufällig habe ich mit den Thraxas Büchern angefangen und war so hellauf begeistert, das einfach weitere folgen mussten.Und wenn jetzt sogar die Möglichkeit für ein signiertes Exemplar besteht...Spitze!Würde mich freuen, eines zu erhalten.Also, hier bin ich!Schöne GrüßeUnd by the wayWann gehts mit Thraxas denn nun weiter?Stretigkeiten müssten doch beigelegt und Ideen vorhanden sein...Ciao Chris
Hey MartinJust wanted to say I loved Curse of the Wolf Girl. As I knew I would. It was thrilling and very funny. There was so much going on with so many plots threads and characters to keep track of that you could probably have got two or three books out of the material. I especially loved Vex and her character journey. Couple of quesations for you:1. I was wondering what happened to Kalix's love for The Runaways? I don't think it was mentioned as far as I can remember.2. Please tell me that you intend to continue writing all about Kalix and co. I'd be bereft without anymore of their adventures.
Just finished Curse of the Wolf Girl (which I loved). Hope there will be more, but here's my question: WHEN are the werewolves and fire elementals going to meet up in their adventures with the Good Faeries (my favorite book)? Because after all, both the werewolves and the good faeries are all fond of Scottish whiskey, and the Good Faeries might even be capable of drinking Beauty and Delicious under the table. Thanks.
I would just like to say that I am very excited to hear that you have plans to write a 9th Thraxas novel, ebook or otherwise. The Thraxas novels comprise some of the most loved volumes in a fairly extensive library. The wait since the end of the 8th book has been incredibly vexing for me, but now you have given me an excuse to revisit my old friends in Turai in anticipation of new adventures...
I have read your books Lonely Wolf Girl & Curse of the Wolf Girl only as this type of story interest me. Just wanting to know if there is another one to follow Kalix and when??? Is there a movie coming out about Kalix?? love to read more!!! Keep up the good work n cant wait for the next adventure of Kalix.AussieGal
Just chiming in to say I absolutely love your books. I also have a rather silly question.Is "Kalix" prounced "KAY-lix" or "KA-lix"?I am sure this is your most pressing and intellectually impressive reader comment to date.
In reply to a few questions above - Kalix would rhyme with 'Alex,' more or less.There will probably - possibly - be a third book, though I haven't started writing it yet.The film option for Lonely Werewolf Girl is making reasonable progress, although film options very often come to nothing in the end.I'm not sure if these werewolves would ever meet the good fairies. Though actually, it's not an impossible thought.
1. sorry for my bad english. I'm from germany. 2. i read both books about kalix and i LOVED them!! i would really enjoy it if you'll write a third one!!! so i just wanted to say: Please, Please, Please write it!! and please write it SOON!
Hello Martin, I hope you had a decent Halloween. I have been in the mood to dress like a werewolf for the past month or so, mostly because I am currently reading Curse of The Wolf Girl. First a friend and I dressed in drag and were Jack and David from the movie An American Werewolf in London, and our boyfriends dressed as Teen Wolf and his friend Stiles. Then I made a costume that was basically just me as a werewolf. Like a certain werewolf in your books I also enjoy punk rock and have pink hair, so I was definitely inspired by your books while making my costume. I got my friend to take some photos of my costume for you. The pictures here are on my blogalong with some photos of our other costumes. http://quarleyblog.blogspot.com/It's actually pretty difficult to turn the pages of a book with claws, but you get the idea. Thank you for doing what you do.
loved the new Kalix book it is just so much fun to read.... estatic that there will be a new Thraxas book i am currently re-reading them ... please do not stop writing!!!!
Martin, Just wanted to drop a note that Curse was a great followup to Lonely werewolf Girl. Some sequels leave something to be desired, but I think Curse had an excellent story. No sequelitis at all. It does not hurt that you have so many compelling characters to draw from. I think you could make many novels with these characters. *wink* *wink* make more please.
I did of course love curse of the wolf girl. Vex was queen vex for a brief while too, great boots Vex. I've been reading LWG to a friend in hospital, I hoped she'd relate too Kalix but not too much. Waterstones Ipswich now seem to spread you around the shop. Dreams of Sex and Stage Diving among the novels, Good Fairies in Fantasy and Thraxas of course and LWG and CWG in horror. If only Lux and Alby sign on is reprinted you could make it to the Graphic novel section. After years searching it's great to see things back in print and in the shops. I love it and you. Fantastic power of internets and Millar.Simon
Hi. Just thought you might want to know John Scalzi has thrown his blog open to authors to promote their books on it. He gets about 45K visitors each day, so it might be a good opportunity to plug Curse of the Wolf Girl. Free publicity is always good right?http://whatever.scalzi.com/2010/12/03/your-holiday-book-suggestion-list-from-authors
Hi, I myself just finished reading Curse of the Wolf girl. I absolutely loved the story just as much at the first one. I sincerely do hope there is at least a 3rd one down the line, Kalix's story is fantastic from start to finish and the supporting cast is interesting and varied. I look forward to more of your work. sincerely,Geimer
Hi MartinHope things going well for you love all your work but having just read Thraxas 1-8 in three days while fighting of the latest bug doing the rounds I realised how much I missed the series. I know you are busy but its got to be time for number 9! Think I am a hopeless addict.
Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the first two books, I must now insist that Mr. Millar write a third lest he risk being thrown into a volcano. Seriously.Please?
A few month ago you write something about a possible Thraxas Ebook? What is the current Status of it?
Hi, I've just finished reading Suzy, Led Zeppelin and Me for the fifth or sixth time. Sometimes I need a short attention span break! Have you ever considered making it into a screenplay? I think it would make a great film! Certainly better teen fare than The Jonas Brothers 3-D.
Please give us some news for thraxas!.you last write something about it a half year ago, but then notihing...Nice handling with fans.... ;-(
Hey Martin!Just finished Curse of the Wolf Girl and i LOVED it! i really hope you write a third book as theres still loads going on! like the next council meeting, Princess K and her kingdom, and maybe Susi's visit to Scotland? Also when i read Lonely Werewolf Girl, i got all excited when i found out Kalix liked the Runaways (they are just too awesome!) Again, i LOVE your books! :)
Mr Millar, I just wanted to say how much I love your books! Picked up Lonely Werewolf Girl on a whim at the bookstore and couldn't put it down. Was only too happy to find Curse of the Wolf Girl. It has been a while since I last enjoyed a book and am looking forward desperately for another one in the series. Thanks!Malaysian Fan
Please read your fans wishes and tell what about thraxas and makri!!!!
Hi Marin,thank you very much for your novels. I started to read the Turai/Thraxas novels some years ago (actually when the first came out in German) and enjoyed them a lot. It is not the typical fantasy good vs. bad epical stories and I came to like Thraxas' pragmatical and sometimes zynical humor and behavior. I really really hope that you find the time to finish the series. Until then I think that I will start the lonely werewolf girl. Sounds interesting too.kind regardsMarkus
Hi Martin! Well, I've just finished Curse of the Wolf Girls and I find that it's fantastic. It's so funny and so special!...I hope you're already writing the sequel because all is kept in suspense so i wanna know how will end Moonglow and Daniel's "love story" and naturally if some of the wolf girls will be able to get in love! Oh, you've got a great gift in description and dialogues so...i love your books!From ItalyMariaconsiglia
Been reading books for awhile now very few authors raise my attention, You have, I have read of yours,good fairies,Lux and ruby.When I read the first Werewolf book I could not put it down. I devoured every page wanting more. The second did not disapoint me. Now I am left wanting more. I related to Kalix, being myself Bi-polar and often in trouble. Her battle madness is how it feels when you have a really bad manic episode. You won't backdown and are extreamly aggressive and argumentative. Of course very little blood is spilled Lol. You are the first author I have ever written to. I enjoy the seamless way you move through the book engageing one lot of charectors and moving backwards and forwards amongnst them. Very rythmic even melodic to me.I give you a one woman standing ovation,Hooray,Cheers VirginiaTasmania, Australia
Great author, site and news could be more updated.wait for mroe of thraxas and turai.or let mwe write somthing about it.CMP
I just finished curse of the werewolf girl, thank you so much for writing books that touch on depression and other social issues in a fantasy novel, I always feel so good when reading your work, I am not alone when saying the Kalix books deserve a few more installations!I totally related to Kalix having to own all 12 issues of her comic- I am currently collecting Joss Wheadons Buffy, season 8... Much love from Australia
I love the 2 Werewolf girl books! I'm glal that Martin Millar said there will possibly probably be a 3rd, but he hasn't started writing it yet.
9th Thraxis coming as an eBook - that's GREAT NEWS!I just finished savoring Tank Girl ("Where was I?") and wanted to recommend it to the rest of my fellow Thraxis fans: If you want to experience a day in the tavern with Thraxis & Makri translated into their post-apocalypse future alter-egos, get your hands on a copy and get ready for more fun from the hands of the great Mr. Millar! :-)
These books helped me through a very bad cycle of my depression, thanks love, also when's the next one coming out!
got all the Thraxas - how long are you planning to leave him floating around in a boat with insufficient food and beer?got both Kalix books - how long are you going to leave those poor vulnerable young people stacking shelves (presumably in the Camden Road Sainsbury'si'm now reading lesser stuff, waiting for your muse?
I live in Taiwan and just read your book "Lonely werewolf girl".I like it very much and I'm looking forward to the next book!
You are a comedy god. The fact that you watch anime makes you even awesomer. Just finished all eight Thraxas books and they were superb, as were your werewolf books and the good fairies of New York. The thing about Jane Austen and the walnut oil in your difficult sex story has to be one of the greatest comedy contributions to all of human culture that has ever been and ever will be. I'm feeling pretty crestfallen with how Thraxas ended with no sequel in sight, but I'm looking forward to reading more about Kalix (who is basically the werewolf equivalent of Makri, though perhaps a little bit more drug addicted). Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to talk about anime; I'm pretty much a fanatic that downloads the fansubs as soon as they are available for pretty much everything.
Kalix now! Want... no need more!! KALLLLIX
Hello there! I drew some Malveria fan art and I'd like to do more drawings of your characters. Is this okay with you?Here's the Malveria picture, if you want to see it: http://little-leaf-sprite.deviantart.com/#/d4iox6gRuth Redwood
Hello Ruth, I really like your picture of Malveria, and of course, feel free to do any more drawing you like. I'll be pleased to see them.
hello I just finsihed curse of the wolf girl and I love them! Are you still planning on making a third book? Is there progress with any movie plans? I can see this going over well right now...
Hi to everyone.I heard something about the making of a movie about Khalix with the title ''Lonely werewolf girl'' (book title lol).Does anyone know something?
A review sighted, comparing you to JK Rowling.http://50bookchallenge.livejournal.com/12363091.html
In response to the slowness of your excellent creativity I find myself drifting into phantasy...so Thraxas, Makri and boat enter a magical thingy and are mysteriously transported to the Regents Park Canal. Disembarking at Camden Lock, they a just happen to come across Kalix, Daniel and Moonglow being dragged protesting along Chalk Farm Road by Vex, in search of new and bigger boots .....this could get worse
Dear Mr. Millar: If you write a ninth THRAXAS book I would be willing finance a limited edition hardcover, signed and numbered, profusely illustrated with donated fan art, and giving any revenue beyond my break-even to a charity of your choice. Once this limitied edition sells through you can then make available as an ebook or do whatever you like with it. What do you say? Respond at bigbookroom (at) gmail (dot) com. We can even make a webpage on your blog for readers who want to reserve a copy in advance and we can take pre-sale orders to get an idea of exactly how many to print for the limited edition.
Hi Martin,just a little dity to let you know I LOVE "Lonely Werewolf Girl" hesitating to finish it....don't want the story to end ! Gladly, I found that there's a sequel *YEA !* so I purchased that last night, along with "The Good Fairies of New York". At 53, I wish I had found your "colorful" books sooner, but now's a good a time as any !ps: I don't have "cable tv" either....HAH !
28th May 2012 - I recently finished a first draft of a ninth Thraxas novel, though it's still some way from completion. When it's ready, I plan to sell it as an ebook. I'll also make the other eight Thraxas novels available as ebooks. It will be some months before this is all ready to go, but it is on the way.
What U.S. forum will you be releasing your ninth Tharaxs novel to the public? Amazon? Apple? All of the above?
All of the above, I hope.
Happy to know that the ninth Thraxas will be seen :) if its not a secret , do you have any plans about continuing Thraxas after eventual ninth book ?
Thank you Martin for writing this book. Made my day, week and month. Takes a good writer to do that. Thanks, Steve
9 July 2012: So excited to hear that there will be a ninth Thraxas book - really enjoyed all of them (and almost all of your other books too!). Book 8 was great, but if it had been the end of the series, it would have been quite frustrating. As I'm getting on in age, I hope the ninth comes out while I am still around! Publishing as eBooks is excellent - I have nearly all of the books in that form (can't find book 8 in that form), as well as on paper. Paper books still beat eBooks in most respects, but for convenience and size the eBook wins every time, and I can take so many with me in a Kindle/iPad/Mac/PC, so that I can take my pick when away from home.
Excellent news about the next Thraxas novel and also next wolf girl book novel.... Cannot wait and love the fact that they are coming as ebooks. Will now need to re-read them all!!!
I think it would be funny if Tharax is thrusted into a leadership position. Most of the city officals have either been killed or have fled the city to unknown locations. Tharax is still a standing tribune & has not been released (voluntary or unvoluntary) from his position. Maybe some rarely used law would promote him to an acting dictator while at a state of emergency (similar to the Roman republic).
good to read, that you write a ninth thraxas novel!Hope it will be translaste into german when its ready...and hopefully as paperback or pocket book
when we'll be able to read the new adventure of kalix and co.??? I really love them sorry for the grammer
I can't say exactly, but the third book about Kalix should be published next year, 2013.
Thank you. I've wanted to read more Thraxas for years! Is there any way to send you my email address so I can put a note up on Baen's Bar when it's available. He's still got a lot of fans on this side of the pond.
Yes, you could email me through my website if you like, and I'll notify you when it's available.
Hi Martin!I loved your Thraxas-Books. Is there any change for a german ebook-publication of the ninth book? Kind regards,Steffi
I'm not sure Steffi. My agent will show the new Thraxas book to the German publisher, but it's been several years since the last book, so i don't know if they will want to publish a new one.
Hi Martin,Any updates re a ninth Thraxas novel Go Live date?
Not yet, though it's not far away. I'm still hoping for before the end of the year, if not, not long after.
I thought there was already a Thraxas written but you had some sort of licensing / rights held by publishers issues?
Books about Thraxas - good books! Still waiting new hostory about him. Thanks, Martin!
Hi there,First off, I wanted to say thank you for writing The Good Faeries of New York. I have Crohn's Disease and I'd never seen a (main) character with this condition written about before. It was a pleasant surprise & an introduction to your work!I am also really fond of Lux the Poet. I enjoy the fact that you write about characters who don't usually get written about, & do so with imagination & compassion. Recently I came across a translation of Li Bao's poem where he travels to Tianmu Mountain in a dream, and wondered if that was where you got the inspiration for Kalia (and to some degree, Lux)? I wrote a bit about the poem on my blog, under Oblivion Monstrosus.Again, thanks for writing! Looking forward to the next Kalix.
Hi, Martin.Love & care from Russia! I am fond of your books, actually. Suzy Led Zeppelin & Me is just the kind of stuff teen frustrated girl wants to read. So,I have an ass-huge question.I've got a hell-lot of troubles at home. My granny hates me, mom yells at me, dad is just kind of paranoic + doesn't want me to be anywhere but at home. I have no bloody idea what should I do.Protest? Leave home for a week or so? Tell'em I do what I want then fuck off forever? What? Can you advice me basically ANY way of dealing with the situation without insulting my parents?Thanks anyway,not hoping for you to answer,Irene.
I wish I could help you Irene, but I couldn't offer you any helpful advice. I really don't know what you life is like in Russia. Also, I never got on that well with my parents either. I will just have to wish you good luck, and I hope you manage to sort out your problems.
27 December 2012I'm making progress with Thraxas. The first novel is now available again, as an ebook. The new novel, Thraxas and the Ice Dragon, will be released soon, also as an ebook. There are more details about all this on the Thraxas website at www.thraxas.com
Martin these novel were the best werewolf novels I've ever read thank you for sharing them with us! I would just like to know if there is a possibility of a third installment on the way soon? and also if you would ever give some serious thought to writing a prequel about the old thane as i feel that would also be a great read.
Yes, there is a third novel on the way - The Anxiety of Kalix the Werewolf. it will be released in Britain in August.
30 Jan 13: The second Thraxas ebook, Thraxas and the Warrior Monks, is now available on Amazon Kindle, Kindle UK, the Apple iBookstore and Kobo. It will be available at other locations soon. The third ebook, Thraxas at the Races, will follow in a week or two, and shortly after that, the next one to be published will be my new book, Thraxas and the Ice Dragon. Once Thraxas and the Ice Dragon has been released, the others will be issued, and it won't be too long before the entire series is available as ebooks.
19 February: First three Thraxas books now available as ebooks. New ebook, Thraxas and the Ice Dragon, will be available by the end of February.
Which February! I hope 2013. Only three days left ;-) I can´t wait.
It looks like I'll miss that date. Not my much, however. The book is now in the distribution system and will be available by March 8th.

Wooot??? Just gone through my old amazon reviews, and clicked a few links here and there, and bam, guess what? I found that you´ve written a new Tharaxas book!!!Man you can´t belive how happy this makes me... I remember you old board, and the comments that you didn´t write anoter Tharaxas book(That´s why I didn´t like Kalix:)Any infos on which publisher is bringing this to the german market.(Just for my collection;) I´m getting this on Itunes now!!!Man you are great! Thanks for giving me a few hours more Tharaxas after all these years.Greetings from Austria!
I don't yet know about a German publisher. My agent is talking to them, but there has been a long gap since the last book in Germany, so I'm not certain if Blanvalet or any other will want to publish this.
Blanvalet sucks! Ask "Feder & Schwert".
Martin Millar! Fantastic series so far, I am incredibly psyched about the series...(so far?) I really hope that you continue to write more adventures about Thraxas as this is such an amazing storyline. 9 books is quite a lot...but there should definitely be some closure to the Orc War. Thank you for hours well spent...I laughed at the humorous antics Thraxas always found himself involved, and felt mystified when this unorthodox Sherlock deduced, and discovered the perpetrator of the crime. There are no other books remotely similar to this, so I ask you; PLEASE continue to write these stories!-A very dedicated fan
Hi Martin,I have just finished 'Thraxas under Siege' - Ace. I liked the previous books but this one I found the most exciting. I am hooked on the continuing story lines of this and 'at War'. Going to get the 'Ice Dragon' book ordered - so glad I have only just read 'under Siege' and not when it was first released as otherwise I would have been waiting years for the sequel. Thanks again for letting me escape into your worlds when the 'real' world can be so shit. :)Jon
........Oh no......I have just realised that you canonly buy the newest Thraxas book as an e-book :-( Will it be released as a hard copy?
No, there won't be a print version in the foreseeable future. I regret this, but there was no option. Ebooks were the only way to get the series back to life at this moment. (18 July 13)
OK. Thanks for responding though. I suppose I now have 1 reason to buy an ebook reader....... if you write lots more Thraxas books I will have even more reasons ;-).......
Hi There,Will Thraxas and Makri fall in love with each other. That will be awesome!!
Mark please do a book about the old thane from the lonley wereolf series and I promise when I win the lottery I will send some of the winnings your way.
Hi Martin, currently reading The Anxiety of Kalix the Werewolf - love it. Would you ever conider writing a prequel to the series? Perhaps about all the MacRinnalch kids growing up together in the castle?
Nah, not a prequel. We need to see what happens next! Any word on when we can expect #4?
Hello,will there be a german translation of thraxas and the ice-dragon?
Adoro Martin Millar!!!!!Quando arrivera' il nuovo libro in Italia???Lucia
Simply thanks mate. It's your choice as to whether you write another volume or not - I've just finished re-reading my paperbacks including the original editions and was feeling deprived!Now I have found this I am at least (as the vicar said to the tart), temporally relieved.The ebook price is trivial; I'll get the rest on kindle as well. Do you have a contribute button anywhere so I can pay you the outstanding profits the publisher et al would have made?ThanksSimon
