Read full description of the books Lux the Poet:There is something about Lux. HeOCOs a thief and a liar; he is selfish and self-absorbed and hopelessly vain. But while he looks like Lana Turner and romances like a true Casanova, Lux is actually more like a bumbling, oblivious Mary Tyler Moore.
Amid shouting mobs, police shields, and the hurled bricks of the OCO80s Brixton riots, Lux is searching for Pearl?the love of his life. Her home has been burned down by a stray petrol bomb, and sheOCOs searching for sanctuary along with her friend Nicky. Nicky is traumatized after having killed her computer?her best friend?and is herself being followed by Happy Science PLC. It is their plan to breed a superior next generation by implanting the sperm of genius men inside beautiful women. She knows too much about the plan. Lux is helped in his quest by Kalia, a castaway of Heaven attempting to get back in GodOCOs good graces by performing one million good deeds over countless lifetimes. ThereOCOs also a thrash metal band, a riot-party, past lives, and KY. Lots of KY."
Read information about the authorMartin Millar is a critically acclaimed Scottish writer from Glasgow, now resident in London. He also writes the Thraxas series of fantasy novels under the pseudonym Martin Scott.
The novels he writes as Martin Millar dwell on urban decay and British sub-cultures, and the impact this has on a range of characters, both realistic and supernatural. There are elements of magical realism, and the feeling that the boundary between real life and the supernatural is not very thick. Most of them are set in Brixton, Millar's one-time place of residence. Many are at least semi-autobiographical, and Love and Peace with Melody Paradise and Suzy, Led Zeppelin and Me both feature Millar himself as a character.
As Martin Scott his Thraxas novels are a fusion of traditional high fantasy and pulp noir thrillers.
In 2000, he won the World Fantasy Award for best novel for Thraxas.
