in the S-P books skulduggery's child is always referred to as child or they, never he/she. What if the child was genderfluid... there is only 1 known genderfluid character in sp, Never. what if they were actually trapped in time, and their reflection was killed instead, then they were later let out of the time loop-thing and adopted.
I think this explains a fair few things.Read more >
I feel like I'm the only one who didn't like this book.
I found the plot surprisingly hard to follow (given that it was very linear) and way to ridiculous, even for Skulduggery standards. I think the latter may have to do with the juxtaposition of the serious and too extensive world-building and the resurrection of Skulduggery's evil ex-girfriend (no explanation needed there).
I do ship Valkyrie and Militsa though. That'd be kinda cute.
What did you guys think? Am I alone in this view?Read more >
Im up to the fifth book and i want some ship names :PRead more >
The day has come! We have a title, as well as a cover, for the new Skulduggery Pleasant book! SPX finally has a name!
Skulduggery Pleasant: Resurrection
The new tagline for the tenth book is "You Can't Keep A Dead Man Down".
What do you think of the new book?! What about the tagline? Give us your thoughts below!Read more >
Hey there, I'm a fan from Germany (so sorry for my bad english) and I heard rumors about Derek dating one of his fan and that many minions got very upset about it, and my question is: Is it true?
I don't care if he's dating a fan, I would probaly do the same thing if I'd like the person. But why do some fans feel uncomfortable about this? Is she (or him, I don't know) a minor or something, or are some people just overreacting or even being jealous?
Would be great if you answer 'cause I'm serously irritated by the reactions (and a lil' bit curious whatever it's true or not).Read more >
This is quite late, but Derek's new series has been announced! It's none other than Demon Road (as you have guessed from the articles already created on here)! :D
If you're super excited, you can read a preview of the first book, Demon Road, right here. Credit goes where credit is due - I had no part in getting the images or the transcript.
On top of that, the cover has been released! In fact a second version has been made, with some minor alterations. Here is the cover:
I'm pretty excited myself, despite at first not being that pumped. Are you guys excited? What do you think of the cover? Predictions on the series? Discuss anything about Demon Road here, or check out the Demon Road subforum on the Skulduggery Forums here!Read more >
To anyone having problems with the new Visual Editor, remember that you can access the Classic Editor from the little arrow beside the Edit Button at the top of the page or by bringing up the Nav-bar from the Bottom Right Corner and choosing the right option.

For anybody who wants a cohesive narrative of the Theatre of Shadows interactive event, here are some useful resources:
This children's programme on RTÉ (Ireland's T.V Broadcaster) provided an in-depth account of the event from the Live Operatives' point of view:

The Short story released by Derek Landy is available to read online and tells the account from some of the character's point of view: My dearest Operatives. It will be edited and re-released in the paperback of Armageddon Outta Here.
The Theatre of Shadows mini-site contains information about Silas Nadir while social media tell the tale of Seamus T Steepe and the goings-on in The Ofiice of Elder Erskine.…

The Dying of the Light will be released very soon and a number of videos have been uploaded to the official website. These videos feature Derek Landy talking about various aspects of the final book.
The front and back cover art is also available to view; either on Derek's Blog or on this website.
Most recently, the official trailer for the final book is up on Derek's Blog:
Finally, I would like to remind you of the Spoiler Policy. Article about Characters, Locations, Events, etc. can be created and placed in the various namespaces on this wiki (e.g, in the Characters Category).

Just Saying Thx For This Wikia
ByeRead more >
Just to let you know - Theatre of Shadows is an on-going media event, released to herald the arrival of The Dying of the Light, the final book. However, chronologically, it takes place between Kingdom Of The Wicked and Last Stand Of Dead Men, following the chaos Argeddion created during the Summer of Light.
Of course, our Wiki is at the forefront of continuous events like this, already providing article on the likes of Moody Mountain and updating relevant articles like Silas Nadir and Erskine Ravel.
If you have missed part of the story, you can catch up with our complete set of correspondence released during the event, available at our Theatre of Shadows page.
However, we do need you help for one aspect. For any Operatives attending the live …Read more >
Hey guys, i don't edit here much but i'm a huge fan of ther series and i'd like to make a quick suggestion. With all of the fanon content on the wiki why not make a fanon one?Read more >
I've a lot to say but for now here are the most important points:
The release of this book has severely outdated a lot of our articles, particuarly for main characters. It has also created a number of timeline problems which are discussed here: Discussion with TerriaNight and here: Forums Discussion (Beware of Spoilers!)
Until we can fix these problems, it is advisable to focus on creating plot synopses for the short stories, new pages for characters like Bubba Moon and updating obsolete biographies like Caelan and Erskine Ravel.
Unexpectedly, this event has now revealed to be a canonical event, set at least eight weeks after Kingdom Of The Wicked. For now, all that we can do is to reflect the premise in characters' biographies that appear i…

The only way to obtain an invite is to be the winner of one of the competitions that will be revealed in the coming months.
Also, 250 Party Packs will be distributed around the world to other winners that cannot attend the ball.

I am terribly sorry for be inactive as of late. Things have happened in real life lately, but I have to admit I have been coming here less due to other internet-commitments and forgetfulness.
I think the first and most imporant thing I need to do is thank Marino312. Without him, this place would look more messy and nothing would have happened. Thank you, Marino. :)
Now, onto the stuff. Book nine is coming out in two months from today. Ideally, everything concerning the previous books is updated and there's nothing to do but wait until there's new content. That's never going to happen, but we can try and get as close as possible.
The first thing to do, is to fill in information on all articles that need more information. I've ne…

Who knows what this is. Apparently you can't sign up if you're from America, so that sucks for the American fans.
I don't know what this is though, or how we're going to integrate it on the forums. Maybe it's like an SP Pottermore thing?
Feel free to comment about Theatre of Shadows below!Read more >
Isn't it exciting? (As an aside, our list of book above is finally complete!) Soon, we will have to create - as always - a discussion for spoiler, theories etc, when they start appearing. For now at least don't have to worry about that; we can look forward to Armageddon-Outta-Here in two weeks!
Apart from the paperback of this book and the (possible) paperback of Armageddon-Outta-Here, I don't think we'll be getting much art for our encyclopedia anymore. Unless the film is released....

I love the Skulduggery Pleasant books! I love them so much... :)
But, here in germany, i have 1-7. And the Tanith Low book. I don't have the 8 book. Thats very sad. (My english is sad to! ;) )
My favourite charakter is Skulduggery, of course! He is funny and....cool! German: Ich kann mich voll mit ihm identivizieren! (Wie auch immer das geschrieben wird.) ((You know wat i mean))

OK so my theory is that the reflection will become Stephanie meaning that the piece of non-magical mind she had left was the only thing keeping out Darquesse so now she will become Darqueese for she has no piece of mortalism in her. Valkyrie then has become crazed with magic creating the monster, Darquesse. The reflection now teams up with Skulduggery in a attempt to find Valkyrie. The reflection however is reluctant because when Valkyrie has been rid of Darquesse she will possibly become Stephanie leaving her magic behind. So in the end the reflection either morphs in with Valkyrie/Darquesse or they kill the reflection and Valkyrie marries Skulduggery ( maybe not that end bit ;) ) Anyway comment if you agree or comment YOUR thoughts. …Read more >

The Maleficent Seven was released a while ago. We are such speedy admins, that when we made this blog post it was shoved into the future.

Recently, Derek Landy (you may have heard of him, he's this author person) finally started his Twitter. To start with, he posted a fascinating tale about a girl called Mary told through tweets. It involved axe murderers.
I've posted up a picture so you can read it unpreceeded by a bunch of other comments. Shall also have a non-back-to-front version later, so you can read it non-back-to-frontly. There may be future Twitter stories, too, so if you wish to subscribe to Landy, now is the time...
Hmm, I wonder. In future, if this keeps up, may we expand this to a Derek Landy wiki? Landypedia, perhaps. But, the future.

Ah, the end of the world. No, not that one, the 21st December thing. Truly, a time for celebrations.

Hey guys. So I found about this awesome Youtube channel where figures of history and pop culture battle each other with raps. Here's an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDj7gvc_dsA Anyway, when I was watching this, I absolutely thought of Skulduggey battling either Harry Dresden (another sorcerer detective, I'm a big fan of him too), or Harry Potter (a rivial of the Skulduggery Pleasant series. I'm not a fan of the Harry Potter series really, I mean I like Rowling's writing and how it got kids to read, it's just the plots don't intrigue me enough to read them). In comments, people offer who should rap next. I presented my offers, but there has to be more people to comment the same offer in order for it to happen. The point is, if yo…Read more >

About 2 days left for K-O-T-W! I could afford with the seconds left but... You see, I am a bit lazy to write down the seconds left. Let's just go with 2 days, Ok?
Good. So yeah. 2 days. How do you guys feel?
Me? I need another page for this you see. ^^
The whole state is excited... A half of it is enough to be counted as something so the whole state excited for KoTW is something else to celebrate! Although we get the books late, we have faith in flying books. Best book delivery. Ever.
I'm also planning a small worldwide celebration when the countdown finally ends. It is small, but its worth trying. ;]
So yeah, what do you guys think?Read more >
Alright. So I go to vacation and new profile pictures are revealed WITH the BBC/Skul short film news. Amazing timing, right there.
Well, I think this short film is "really real" since Derek wrote about it in his blog and he seems pretty amused by this. I'm sure you've already read it but I couldn't help it you see.
It's not official though, BBC doesn't have anything about the project or anything like that on their website. No secret codes, no news written in "caps lock". NOTHIN'.

Below are the characters, clues and the complete profiles.

- Day 2 - What disturbing character is described as being neither male nor female?
- Day 3 - He’s brooding, dark, dangerous and quite humourless. Also his romantic streak is quite… overbearing. Who is he?

Hey guys, thanks for clicking this. First off....I WAS RIGHT! MY PSYCHIC INSTINCTS WERE RIGHT! THE COVER'S TITLE WAS GOLD! Second off, I thought the cover was...okay, but I realised it missed something, it only took a moment before I realised what it was...BLACK AND WHITE. The main character on the front is ALWAYS black and white to create the old noir film flair. The cover we all saw didn't have it. So I decided to try and make Skulduggery in it completely black and white.
So? Does it look better or not?Read more >
