Ho hum
Looks like the BBC is at it again.

Page here about new book awards in the US.

Big headline about JKR being nominated, bugger all about Terry also being nominated. :-(

A website for voting opens on the 15th, no info yet but it's probably only open to those in the USA.

Current Mood: annoyed annoyed

At least they're competing in separate categories :-)

JKR will be relieved about that as she's 'not fantasy at all, oh no...'

*LOL*

I think the only thing about her that isn't fantasy is what she regards her work as... oh - hang on - that's a delusion and therefore fantasy as well, isn't it ;-)

Yes, but is it subversive?

I still want to know why a bunch of wizards and witches still celebrate Easter and Christmas *g*

Good point. But I think Harry and his friends aren't so much wizards and witches in the proper sense of the word (especially not witches), they're more mages really. I suppose that's a word that never occurred to JKR, and the age group she originally started out writing for probably wouldn't have understood it anyway.
