New "Thraxas" books
I'm sure I'm not alone in being a fan of the highly enjoyable "Thraxas" series by Martin Scott (real name Martin Millar), about a failed Wizard turned private investigator and his homicidal but cute half-Orc sidekick. 8 books in the series were published by Baen between 1999 and 2003, but then some kind of contractual dispute arose between Mr. Millar and Baen, leaving the series finished on a cliff-hanger.
I was delighted to see today, purely by accident, that a new book's just been published, "Thraxas and the Ice Dragon", continuing the story, with a 10th book promised soon.
An excellent series which I recommend to every fantasy fan.
