-The top secret "lateral fiction" document that Jo wrote to flesh out the Potter world for the vidgame makers
-Everything in the games - the spells, the creatures, everything - that isn't in the books comes straight from Jo. It's canon.
-How will the relationship between a wand and a wizard become more important in book seven, as Jo said it would? We talk all about it in Canon Conundrums.
-In our fan interview: About reading groups, and whether they're a good place to start before heading out into the larger forum
-Was Dumbledore nuts to keep sending all those letters to Harry in book one?
-Sue's off having dinner with Jason this week
