I dunno, did Cornwell talk big in interviews about how much the Arthur Mythos sucked and his was going to be so much  better and more adult?



Can you give me a link to Grossman doing this about HP, by the way? Coz I've gone looking and while he does do the 'for grownups' thing I can't find him ever actually criticising HP and he doesn't seem to have any problem with Rowling, even though he once wrote a supposedly famously terrible Time profile of her that he's since been cringingly apologetic for but which I can't actually read because it's behind their paywall.

Most of the stuff does come from that Time article though, which, at the nicest, you could call a hit piece. Just, ugh. But, apologies for said article aside, I still think his books suck. :P

Lev Grossman absolutely loves Harry Potter.  I've seen him at numerous Harry Potter related conferences in the past speak about this.  His oldest daughter is named Lily.

I'm really looking forward to his new novel.

Well that's the craziest shit I've read all year, by far.

Next GRRM will post about how much he loves Vox Day.

That’s it? What Lady N posted? That’s not a hit piece. You might say it’s an uniformative article but there’s nothing actually wrong with it.

I'll be interested to see how this season of the Magicians goes given that they've already used up a good chunk of book one and two. 

I am looking forward to edge of the world bit - I hope they keep that.
