The book series, which includes many short story collections, was first published by Fujimi Shobo and ended in 2003. A new Sorcerous Stabber Orphen series published by TO Entertainment began in 2011. 

J Novel Club describes the original series, titled Sorcerous Stabber Orphen: The Wayward Journey, as:

Orphen is a Sorcerer drop-out from the prestigious Tower of Fangs. His journey to save Azalie, a girl he looked up to like a sister, has brought him to the bustling city of Totokanta. Here they are reunited for the first time in five years. But what is the truth behind her monstrous transformation, and just what secrets lurk behind the Sword of Baldanders…?

Before the current anime, two J.C.STAFF-produced anime series were released in the late 90s. Sorcerous Stabber Orphen has also inspired multiple manga.
