THE STRANGER'S WOES: The Continuing Adventures of Max Frei


Max Frei, author of the international bestselling The Labyrinths of Echo series, continues the adventures of twenty-something loser Max Frei with The Stranger's Woes, published this week by Overlook.

In this new volume, Max finds himself transported to the magical world of Echo, where he possesses magical abilities and becomes the Nocturnal Representative of the Most Venerable Head of the Minor Secret Investigative Force of the City of Echo. With friends and colleagues—the omniscient Sir Juffin Hully, the hilarious Melifaro and the beautiful Lady Melamori Blimm—Sir Max enjoys a life where he’s no longer a social outcast as he solves crimes, battles illegal magic and fights trespassing monsters from other worlds. Now in The Stranger’s Woes, Max will takes on cases more complicated and dangerous than ever before in this strange universe.

Packed with the same wise-cracking humor and running jokes, The Stranger's Woes will delight fans of The Stranger, which is now available in a new paperback edition.

As many know by now, Max Frei is the pen name for the Russian writer and artist Svetlana Yuryevna Martynchik (right). Martynchik has written ten fantasy novels in the Labyrinths of Echo series as well as several other works. Max Frei, as we all know, appears as a character in the series.
