Eoin Colfer plots Artemis Fowl's end

27th July 2010

Children's author Eoin Colfer is preparing to close the book on his best-known character - the teenage criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl.

Speaking to the Guardian, the writer explained that his latest offering, Artemis Fowl and the Atlantis Complex, is the antihero's penultimate adventure - even though he admits he has become 'fond' of the character.

Colfer also revealed that he already has a plan for Fowl's last appearance and intends to make the boy genius choose between being unkind and becoming a millionaire or doing a good deed and ending up with nothing.

'There's not going to be any huge battle and going up the stairs to heaven, it's not going to be that kind of finish. There will be the big adventure, but the end will be in a little epilogue,' he told the newspaper.

The author added that over the course of the series, which started with Artemis Fowl in 2001, the protagonist has changed from a horrible criminal to a Robin Hood-esque adventurer, while some of his kinder characteristics have been inspired by Colfer's son.

Outside of the Artemis Fowl series, Colfer's other books include The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy sequel And Another Thing... and The Supernaturalist.
