Posted to What Are You Reading?




the first time i heard someone say, "i don't know how this author thought of all these things...what an imagination..."

um...yeah. let's review the list:

alchemy
a three headed dog (chimera)
the guardian theme
flying brooms
orphan type/neglect themes
underdog triumph
evil v. good
the evil overlord
bad school lunches
antiquated language
evil school marms
girls v. the boys
kids outsmarting adults
secret tunnels/passages/worlds
magic
magic wands
magic balls

hmmm...you're right. this is truly groundbreaking and totally original material. i don't know how postmodern (or whatever they decide we'll be called) academia has passed up harry friggin' potter.
