There's been a lot of talk surrounding J.K. Rowling's new four-part work on Pottermore, "The History of Magic in North America." I'm in the process of writing an article on it now.

In the meantime, I was interviewed for this article in The Huffington Post about the Native American aspect of Rowling's work.



In addition, the team at the SpeakBeasty podcast (which is dedicated to the forthcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them films) has devoted a thoughtful episode to the first two parts of "The History" here: "Episode 7: Porpentina Ate A Bagel."

On a loosely related note, something which may be of interest is this series entitled Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers. At first, it looks like a bog standard fantasy plot, what with the six divinely ordained heroes going off to fight a revived Demon King. But there are a couple of elements which cause it to stand out from the rest. First (and relevant to your post), the setting has a decidedly Mesoamerican look to it. That's not something you see too often. The other is how, when said heroes gather, there's seven of them. At this point, it becomes something of a locked room mystery as they attempt to determine which one is the fake.

Oh, definitely of interest! Thanks so much for putting this on my radar.
