Thraxas and the Ice Dragon is now available. It's the ninth book in the series, and the first new Thraxas novel for seven years.
I write Thraxas under the pseudonym of Martin Scott. The first Thraxas novel won the World Fantasy Award. The Thraxas books are all being re-issued in new editions as ebooks.
Thraxas is a private investigator in the city of Turai. He has some sorcerous powers but mainly he just drinks a lot of beer. Consequently he's always broke and has to live in the poor part of the city. Thraxas is overweight, bad tempered, and a keen gambler at the chariot races. He doesn't make for a pretty sight. His friend Makri is reckoned to be a good deal more attractive, but with her Orcish and Elvish blood, she does have a tendency to be violent.
