How to upset JK Rowling…

Just let the cat out of the bag! Or failing that, says Guy Kewney, make it seem you know more about fantasy writing than she does:

What’s the worst thing you can say about Harry Potter? How about claiming that spells are rather like computer programs? Or how about saying that Slytherin, the school house for all the bad guys, is a “cliche of fantasy”? Or maybe, pointing out that the name of Alecto (the female half of the brother-and-sister Death Eater gang in Half Blood Prince) is actually a name borrowed from one of the three Furies, the Eumenides of Greek mythology?

David Langford says all these things in The End Of Harry Potter. And JK Rowling, the author of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, is not pleased.
