If you look in the news section of the website, AH has finally posted once more! Well, as a Christmas present he has hidden the first chapter of Oblivion on the website. The Clue?

"PS: Anthony decided to hide the first chapter of The Power of Five: Oblivion in Charles Dickens? house! Call that a clue if you like!"

I don't get it, but have fun trying to figure it out!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So I know what your thinking, Why is this in Alex Rider general discussion? That's the other big news! THERE IS A NEW ALEX RIDER SHORT STORY! It's 10,000 words, but I have no idea what it's about, so don't ask! He thinks it will be called A TASTE OF DEATH. Hope that doesn't go as badly as it sounds! But then again Alex is immortal, so I have nothing to worry about. Anywho, he says it will be available for download soon! What do you guys think it will be about?


LINK OF FIRST CHAPTER TO FOLLOW.

PLEASE AVOID IF WANTING TO SEARCH FOR IT YOURSELF.


EDIT: Didn't want to double post in my own topic, so I thought I could just add this little bit. Found the first chapter( yes I do love google) So here is the link if you are hopeless at riddles like me!   http://cdn.anthonyhorowitz.com/nexus/p5b5c1/oc1w.pdf

Alex: "I have a couple of questions."

D. Cray: "Do, please, go ahead."

Alex: "My first one is for Yassen Gregorovich." He turned to the Russian. "Why are you working for this lunatic?"

I can't wait for the Alex Rider short story! I really want to know what age Alex will be! P.S, isn't it coming out on World Book Day? What day is World Book Day on again?

In the UK and Ireland World Book Day is on Thursday 1 March 2012. AH said he was writing it for World Book Day, so it should come out around then. Can't wait!

I know! I was finally coming to terms with the end of Alex Rider. I was beginning to move on, read other books. But then AH throws this on me out of nowhere! I can only imagine what will happen. How old will AR be? I think he'll be the same age, but what if he's an adult? I don't think Alex will die in a short story. There isn't enough time to explain. TORTURE!

I know. I just can't believe JK Rowling can just stop writing completely. I mean, a real author wouldn't want to stop writing, right?

true but she has written other books ... they just arent that acknowledged.
I guess after writing such an epic series it'd be hard to write something as good or even better than that
she'd have to work really hard to do that

but guys we need to get back on topic  wink

So any ideas what will happen? I don't think Alex will be an adult because I just can't see AH writing that. It doesn't seem his style.

PS: I don't think JK Rowling has written anything besides HP, I googled it once.

PPS: Just in case I'm not here on Monday,

HAPPY ALEX RIDER'S BIRTHDAY EVERYONE!
 
And we CAN celebrate because so far Alex is still alive! Plus, the short story is called a taste of death right? Well it's a good thing it's just a taste!

Yeah, Alex's bday is on Monday, right?  grin  grin  grin I think that it will be something like Scorpia or someone coming after Alex in the States. Has anyone read 'Alex Underground'? Where the Spectacles guy and him fight in the underground tube place... It may be a bit like that. Or maybe some people are in trouble and he saves them.

Ya that would be awesome! I don't think it will have anything to do with Scorpia though, they're pretty much finished right? A lot of the short stories have some minor character come back to kill Alex that we've all forgotten about. Stupid people. Don't they know he's immortal? I can't wait for a short story in the U.S.! Hopefully he won't say anything bad about Americans. AH as a knack for that. I just really hope he talks about how Alex is doing. Hope Alex is OK after Scorpia Rising.  

EDIT!
Sorry didn't want to double post in my own topic, but just found amazing and quite disappointing news. I found this on worldbookday.com.

A Taste of Death
Author: Anthony Horowitz
Publisher: Walker Books

Alex Rider has recently returned from his second mission as a teenage spy for MI6, and life is back to normal. So normal, in fact, that the only reason for missing school is an appointment with the dentist.
But a chance encounter with a familiar face triggers Alex's suspicions and it isn't long until he's back in action fighting a terrorist conspiracy.


That was everything on the website. I'll insert a link so you can see for yourselves. UGH! Another story about Alex meeting someone from his past! You've got to be kidding me! I could choke AH! I'm so MAD! That was my last chance for finding out about Alex! This sounds so familiar though. Just like all the other ones. Not even after Scorpia Rising!

Check it out.

Oh. Well. But it's after his second mission, who could it be?
It's always likely that there's a special twist...  smiley
