It’s been long enough that fandom has almost forgotten about the Harry Potter Lexicon court case, but the verdict is in… And it’s for Rowling! Once again, I recommend keeping an eye on Cleolinda’s Fandom Wank post for the continuing story.
You can go ahead and add a copy of J.K. Rowling’s The Tales of Beedle the Bard to your Christmas wish list. Sales of the book, which will be released on December 4, will benefit the Children’s High Level Group (CHLG).
JK Rowling’s short story for charity raised £25,000 (that’s about $50,000) at an auction held at the Waterstone’s bookshop in Piccadilly, London. Not bad for 800 words. You can watch a BBC reporter read part of the story here.
The stories by JKR and the other authors who participated will be available starting June 11 at the Waterstone’s website. A print version of the stories will be for sale on August 7 from Waterstone’s.
