Haris Aslam and the Philosopher's Biscuit. As a critic said recently remarking on FB's skill, 'It's miraculous - this level of ignorance makes you think he has never read the books.'
It is therefore natural that the world of Rowling fans, which numbers slightly more than FB's handful of loyal supporters, should turn to him for elucidation. There is anxious mystification among them after the launch of JK Rowling's new website, called Pottermore. Nothing is known about this project beyond the name and logo. FB understands that there are many rumours. Some think it's a new book involving, others that it's the long-promised Potter encyclopaedia or an interactive gaming site. The more world weary say that it is just a PR stunt ahead of the release of the final Harry Potter film in July. There are fewer suggestions that the website is devoted to encouraging more senior wizards or muggles alike to spend more time in the garden shed.
