The “Horrible Harry Potter Affair”
Oct 08, 2003
Gere Goble of the Mansfield News Journal discusses the flood of angry mail that followed a posting on TLC. The article is actually focused on another subject, with the Potter part found further down the page.
I learned about that in a big way in the Horrible Harry Potter Affair. I wrote a column a while back in which I tried to explain (to myself if no one else) why I’m simply not interested in reading J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books. I thought I might hear from a local fan or two. Ha! Someone posted a link to my column on a Harry Potter fan site (www.the-leaky-cauldron.org). Next thing I knew, I was getting angry e-mails from around the world.
