15bubbles you are making me want to cry!!
I know what you mean - it is like he's totally just putting down this series in order to pick up another one. I suppose its only fair, I mean it is his writing career and I know that if I were an author like him I would probably want to start a new series instead of keep pumping out books about the same characters. But still . . . I hope that maybe some day when I'm like 25 or something I'll be browsing Amazon.com and I'll see Artemis Fowl: Book 9 on there . . . *sniff*
I hope that the new series is substantially different from AF in order to keep AF sacred. I will not stand to read about another lonely boy main character and feisty female. I won't be able to deal with another Foaly type or Mulch type or Butler type or Root type without going into hysterics and flooding the room with tears. So I hope that if he is really going to make up a new series and leave AF behind, that he really does leave AF behind and start over with something completely new and different so I can pretend it isn't taking AF's place.
