Dear Readers,

I now consider this blog to be my Juvenelia. Have fun perusing the archives, and find me at my new haunt, here.

Michiko Vs. JKR

So the Times' Kakutani decided to 'purchase" the book early and review it in her usually snooty way, and JKR hit back.

In sum:

Michiko: "blah blah blah blah. Harry Potter blah blah. Listen to me!"

JKR: "I am staggered that some American newspapers have decided to publish purported spoilers in the form of reviews in complete disregard of the wishes of literally millions of readers, particularly children, who wanted to reach Harry's final destination by themselves, in their own time," she said. "I am incredibly grateful to all those newspapers, booksellers and others who have chosen not to attempt to spoil Harry's last adventure for fans."

I think JKR just hit that biatch with a big fat "Stupefy!" Do you think "Michi" is exhibiting normal behavior for a Slytherin, or should she be hauled to Azkhaban for this breach?


  1. HAH! jkr smacked michiko worse than harry's gon' smack young draco. i wish MK's column would head over to the ol' deathly hallows, and let janet maslin (who actually - gasp! - sometimes likes the books that she reads) take over for good.

    (but i know a book critic who puts all the times' stable to shame...)

  2. Personally, I want smack Michiko literally instead of just verbally. I'm unamused at the info leaked in that review.h
