The first part of the Today Show’s interview with JK Rowling has aired. The second part airs on Friday.
Summary article (for those of us who are still at work ::cough::) and video can be found on their website.
Here there be SPOILERS. (Don’t say we didn’t warn you.)
JK Rowling, chief instigator of the Potterdämmerung, will be appearing on NBC’s Today Show on Thursday and Friday. And (according to NBC’s teaser article) she’s now feeling free to discuss some key decisions.
Don’t go there if you’re not done reading!
I just happened to run across this, I swear: Seventy-two million copies. The world really isn’t going to shut up about Harry, are they? God help us all.
Speaking of, Andrew Wheeler and the Dozen Potter Stories.
Hell, not even the Sith are immune.
Perhaps we slightly overestimated the whole Potterdämmerung thing. Live and learn! In any case, this is the last time I’m googling it.
All is well
Maybe now that the book is out there can be a little less bemoaning? Or not. In any case, I got a wrap to do so I’ll just point y’all towards Andrew Wheeler’s HP round-up.
The news that somebody uploaded photos of (probably) every page of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” several days before its official release date did not stay as buried as Scholastic and Bloomsbury might have liked: It was on the front page of the New York Times site, for one thing, and the AP picked it up as well. Spoilerphobes had better head to the back of the cave. Where is Sir Dan with his blindfolds when you need him?
Why is Harry so big? Been asking this for years, but I’m not sure Gannett here has all the answers… Online fandom, certainly, has a lot to do with reader base and the growth of the internet, but is Jo Rowling really the best author of the age?
The series is also adding to the chaos of the Middle East. Harry.
