Scores of readers have emailed regarding a news story about a website promoting something known as “James Potter and the Hall of Elders’ Crossing.” Replete with the familiar Hedwig’s Theme music, familiar animation, and the tradition fonts used to open the Harry Potter films and such, the site looks seemingly authentic. Rumors were bandied about, with the speculation that this was to be some sort of Harry Potter sequel, spin-off or other related official material, but that has all been formally denied as nothing more than a fan hoax, and is not official. Also, a search of trusty Google reveals this title is based on a piece of fanfiction from some time ago, and the host site (, was also once part of a Stephen King fan webring.

Thanks to everyone who emailed and researched this!
