It isn't magic, or casting spells, which makes the star of the Harry Potter movies so dangerous. It is the amount of malicious links one can be lead to if they search out Emma Watson on the Internet. The power of the written word can take us all to sundry and diverse places....

JK Rowling has been the best boon to all authors the 21st Century has seen. All power to her, and all Hail, too. As she embarks on another(?) career with her 'adult' book coming out this month, she (or her publisher) attempt to keep the mantle of Harry Potter and YA classification at a distance....

I do sometimes forget to bow daily in the general direction of England to pay homage to JK Rowling, but that is my fault entirely. What every author owes her as regards to keeping a reading public growing is beyond knowing. To have book sales increase because of movies is a wonder to behold. If...
