Sorry to burst YOUR bubble, Kittygomoo, but i've just been to the site that fully deciphered the third book. It is a full message from artemis, so dont be so mundane, ok?
Anyway, does anyone know the 4th books release date?

this is the translation:
A message from Artemis Fowl. Encrypted.

My dear newfound ally, if you have deciphered this code then you are of sufficient intelligence to aid me in my mission. You may have heard of the Fowl family and imagine this mission to be illegal or even dangerous. I promise you this is not the case. All I ask is that you help me to keep my memories where they belong. In my head.

There are certain forces at work that wish to deprive me of memories that are rightfully mine. These forces would wipe certain facts from my brain that are extremely important, not to mention valuable.

Who are these forces? They are magical fairies known as The People.

I know what you are thinking: this person, Artemis Fowl, has obviously lost his mind. Fairy people? He cannot honestly expect me to believe that nonsense. It is an understandable reaction. Two years ago I would have reacted exactly the same way. But a lot can change in two years.

I have seen dwarves use their cavernous mouths to dig tunnels. I have witnessed the healing power of elves and touched the flank of a noble centaur. These creatures exist. Take my word for it.

But as powerful as these creatures are, they fear one thing: humans. We are the only creatures with the power to overthrow their underground society. Our numbers could subdue even magic. So the People have decided that it is too dangerous to have a human boy with fairy knowledge in his head. Soon they will mindwipe me and this extraordinary information will disappear.

There is one way to stop this happening. I have entrusted a computer disk to a reprobate dwarf by the name of Mulch Diggums. The disk contains all my knowledge of the fairy folk. Of course, the mind wipe will cause me to forget all about the dwarf and the disk. Diggums should bring the disk to me, but common criminals are not to be trusted. I ask you to get a message to me.

The message is simple. Six words only. "Artemis Fowl must find Mulch Diggums".

Wherever you see one of the faithful clutching this book, repeat these words. The message will spread like a virus across the world, eventually reaching my ears. I will act upon it, putting all my resources into locating the mysterious Mister Diggums.

Once I find him, the disk will reactivate all my memories and the knowledge will be mine again. Do this for me and when I rule the world you shall be rewarded. Remember: "Artemis Fowl must find Mulch Diggums."

Your new friend, Artemis Fowl the Second.

Get the books from amazon.co.uk - so much cheaper than in the shops (about half price)

I've found the translation again! Artemis' code is bloomin' difficult to translate, I keep getting the M's and the L's mixed up (they both look annoyingly similar on the page, only that one is slightly higher than the other). However, I shall try to finish it. Artemis babe, I'm on your tail (lookin' forward to seein' you in the movies!)

DAMN! :mad: I CAN'T BELIEVE I POSTED THIS BEFORE I SPOTTED THE MESSAGE ABOVE! Oh well. At least I can read it without having to translate it myself now. Thanks anyway.

Lance Digger, you're a star! I feel so good when I read Artemis' 'speaking', if you know what I mean. I've been wanting to know what his message was for months. Thanks for posting that!

Cheers, Ellen! How funny is it that so many people are emailing Eoin and asking him if they can be in the movie? I wish they wouldnt get their hopes up. When's the 4th artemis fowl book?

This "New Windmills" is not the new Artemis Fowl book. (Thank goodness with a title like that!) It is simply a reprint of the first book. I do not really understand that name. Maybe it just means something new, but really just the same. Like a windmill goes around and around, so it is the same thing, but new. I don't know. But it is not the fourth book. Just the first one again, but new. I LOVE ARTEMIS!!

Poor Bhaal85! no, there are no wands used in the Artemis Fowl series. There are, however, very powerful types of guns manufactured solely by the faerie people, unknown to humans. No wands, tho .

Hey guys, I've been an AF fan forever so i thought I'd join your little chat and tell you guys what i found out about the movie.

During the World Book Day Chat 2003, Eoin Colfer was asked who he would like to play Artemis in the movie. On this occasion he replied that he had recently seen About A Boy and "thought the boy in that was excellent". That boy is Nicholas Hoult, a British 12-year-old with light hair and blue eyes.

Producers: Jane Rosenthal and Robert De Niro

Oh, one more thing. The movie is being written by JOhn Stockwell ("Blue Crush," "Rock Star").

A rumor that Devon Murray (the young Irish actor who plays Seamus Finnegan in the Harry Potter movies) would play the title character has gone unconfirmed.
