HP/Dumbledore

Is Dumbledore Death?

As part of the promotion for Harry Potter for Nerds II, I sat down with my friend and editor, Dr. Kathryn N. McDaniel, to discuss a popular theory in Harry Potter fandom: namely, that Lord Voldemort, Severus Snape, and Harry Potter represent the Three Brothers from The Tales of Beedle the Bard, and that Albus Dumbledore represents Death. Our discussion is now online for free access.



On another note, here are two links that I recommend checking out.

* On Kickstarter: Autumn Cthulhu: Tales of Lovecraftian Horror by Mike Davis. I'm a backer, and I can't wait for this collection (but I will)!

* The Prime Sci-Fantasy Humble Bundle offers some excellent science fiction, fantasy, and Lovecraftian goodness (by the likes of Ursula K. Le Guin, Neil Gaiman, Madeleine L'Engle, Caitlín R. Kiernan, and Nancy Kress) to support charity.
