The race of the Wraeththu was first
developed more than twenty years ago by British writer Storm
Constantine, with the first Wraeththu book trilogy published
in the late 1980s. Since the books' original publication, there
has emerged a growing fan community for this androgynous, hermaphrodite
race — a mix of feminine grace and deadly masculine strength
— and it seems they are now here to stay.

The original trilogy (the Wraeththu Chronicles) was published in
the late 1980s in the U.K. and the U.S. In the early 90s, Tor Books
published a 3-in-one
omnibus edition of these three books. Finally, in 2003, Immanion
Press released the definitive edition of the books, completely
revised by Storm Constantine.
The second trilogy (the Wraeththu Histories) is still in process;
the first book, The Wraiths of Will and Pleasure, was released
in 2003. The next two books will be published in 2004 and 2005.
