What’s your take on this Harry Potter fellow everyone’s raving about? Will we be seeing anything in the near future about a confrontation between Alan Mendelsohn and Harry? That would be interesting..


Daniel replies:

Do you mean, is Alan Mendelsohn going to do the Junior Year Abroad at a wizard academy? Didn't you do something like that? I haven't read the Harry Potter books, but certain persons whose judgement I trust have--and they say they're good. I like that lots of people are reading full-scale fantasy novels written for kids. I'm sure the money-heads are thinking up ways to manipulate this, but it will probably have been an influence for good.
