if i'm not mistaken, wasn't minerva younger than artemis at the start of the lost colony, so when he went into the time "warp" (if i may call it that) and he missed three years and everyone else aged (including minerva) they are now the same age, am i right ?? or am i right.
i love fallout boy

Mr. Colfer, my name is Matthew, and i am a huge fan of your work, and i cant wait for another Artemis book. I also was wondering if you could possibly tell me whether or not the Aremis Fowl movie rumors are true, and if so, tell me where the auditions for the movie will be held and when, because i've been acting for a few years now at local theaters and at school, and i want to see if i'm any good in the real world. I also think that i could be a great Artemis because i'm around the same age as he was in the first book and also because i just kind of act like him. thank you!

There are rumors of a sixth book. Are these valid? My friends and I are all anxiously holding our breath, please email me before we all asphyxiate.

Hello Eoin! I'm a fan of your work, Artemis Fowl in particular, and you've inspired me to try and become an author. Are there any tips you could give me? Please contact me!
P.S. Any thoughts about a Supernaturalist sequal?

I thought it was funny that artemis wanted to do it with minerva for half the book!

Dear Mr. Colfer,
For a long time rumors have been circulating about an upcoming Artemis Fowl movie. Though met with abject horror by me and my friends, these rumors were mostly revealed to be unfounded, until now. More and more websites of greater legitimacy have been making definite statements about plans for a film.
I have always loved the Artemis Fowl books beyond any other series for their originality, for their writing style, and above all for the spirit of the characters, which are conveyed with a playful wit and humor that could never be captured by a lesser author...never mind a film.
And this brings me to my point: I beg you, from the bottom of my heart, not to go forward with making the Artemis Fowl films. What actor could ever covey Holly's wild yet noble spirit, Root's lovable and explosive temper, Foaly's completely indescribable and uncapturable nature? What director could paint with pictures what can only be described with words? What screenplay would capture the essence of the dialogue without canning it's vital eccentricity?
Now, we die-hard Artemis Fowl fans can - and probably will - vow never to see the film. Unfortunately, things are less simple today. Unless you are a hermit, or live in a mineshaft, there is no way to avoid a film completely. After all, you can hardly cover your ears and screw your eyes shut whenever the trailer appears. People who were against the Harry Potter movies will understand. On a plane, on TV, at a friend's house, somehow they all came across it. And now whenever they read Potter, the picture of Daniel Radcliff is stuck permanently in their head.
But comitting Harry Potter to the silver screen is not the same kind of sacrilige as killing the liveliest and freshest of adventure stories on the market. Mr. Colfer, I really love movies. I even have nothing against Winona Rider. But I don't want to see her face whenever I read about Holly Short. Then the book will be dead forever.
I doubt one message will sway you. I doubt this message will even reach you. But I know there are readers out there who believe, as I believe, that this film should not be made. Please, do not allow it to happen.

I was Amazed on how I couldn't take my eyes off the book! Like others I would enjoy to see another Artemis book on the shelf. Your imagination is so genuine. I coudn't think of anything close to as good as the artemis series. Infact I have been trying to conjur up a story that can at least be challenged to yours. The ending of The Lost Colony was pretty clever to keep the readers thriving for more. I couldn't help but being quite surprized when he entered the code into the keypad to enter butler's hut. It was his birthday you wrote... Zero 1, Zero 9. It's extrodinary that the famous artemis fowl's birth date is the same except for maybe the year which still would be very close. Just think of the possibility. Any how, I was hoping that you would have a fan letter mailing adress that i could write to. This is what I found and some how I kind of doubt you even know this web place exists. If you do I'm glad you got my comment.
