Friday afternoon... ugh

Oh God, I didn't come down with my mother's sinus infection--I came down with a stomach bug. Blarrrrrrg. So I'm just going to finish reading my email which is going to take a very, very long time and try to sit very, very still.

However, two Potterdämmerung stories:

RDR Books finally gets an actual lawyer (!), but a restraining order is still granted against the Lexicon book; JK Rowling is a sad panda.

James Potter and the Hall of Elder's Crossing ? Brilliant research from julian_black and peachespig at that entry has discovered that it's 99% most likely a promotion for a professional illustrator and animator's fanfic. Unfortunately, Publisher's Weekly has already picked up the story:
The Lexicon suit is not the only Potter buzz of the week, either. An Australian site is reporting that a new Web site—"harry potter book 8 secret test marketing"—is counting down the days to a project called James Potter and the Hall of Elder's Crossing, rumored to be an eighth Harry Potter novel. Warner Bros., whom many believe is behind the Web site, has neither confirmed nor denied involvement with the rumored project, but a studio spokesperson offered this comment on the site: "Many fans believe that James Potter and the Hall of Elder's Crossing may be the eighth book of the series—but written by someone other than author J.K. Rowling."

A Scholastic spokesperson said, "This is clearly not an eighth book in the Harry Potter series."
And we know how WB feels about amateur competitors who mislead the public. This guy needs to run hard and run fast, y'all.
