Neil loves him, and often recommends his book 'The Good Fairies of New York'.

So I read it, and truthfully, found it very meh.

Then I read The Lonely Werewolf Girl, and then I read The Curse of the Werewolf Girl.

Then I lent my copies out to about 3 or 4 other people and persuaded a couple of others to buy their own, and we're all waiting rather impatiently for book 3.

A main character you want to slap! (okay, maybe that was just me ...) a cross dressing werewolf, a werewolf enchantress and a fire queen are just some of the memorable characters to be found in these books.

It's not going to change your life, but it will give you a few hours of escapist pleasure.

I also noticed, when I read his blog that he wrote the thraxas novels, under the name Martin Scott - I saw these books in my local library when I was younger but never bothered with them - has anyone read them?

I love Martin Millar. But like you Smaug I've only read Good Fairies and the Lonely Werewolf Girl books, which I really enjoyed.

I'd like to know if anyone has read Thraxus too, before I buy it!

Now I've read Ruby and the Stoneage Diet - which was ok. It reminded me of sixties squats in London (and my big sister) which was sad.

I've just picked up the first thaxus book as an ebook, only £3.80.

It's getting good reviews, a link can be found on Martin's blog.

Thank you Smaug. I'm still not happy about ebooks. I find it hard to concentrate reading on the computer and haven't got a thingy reader yet! Very happy with paperbacks still.

Can't wait for the new Werewolf book though! It'll be out soon I think Smile
