We're very proud to announce our first new editor from that bunch, Julie Tynion, who was just too sweet, too persistent, too knowledgeable, and too enthusiastic for us to turn away.

There is an email going around from a "Voldemort" suggesting that if you follow a series of steps, you will receive HBP for free. We are unsure whether it means for free on the day of release, or is purporting to give it to you early (it says you'll have it "first"): either way don't do it. ThisContinued...
