Terry Pratchett Schools J. K. Rowling

In a recent interview with Time Magazine, Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling claimed to not particularly like fantasy and to not really have thought of herself as writing fantasy while she was working on her best-selling books. Long-time fantasy genre favorite Terry Pratchett sent out a statement where he said, “I would have thought that the wizards, witches, trolls, unicorns, hidden worlds, jumping chocolate frogs, owl mail, magic food, ghosts, broomsticks and spells would have given her a clue?” According to the BBC, Pratchett has sold more than forty million copies of his own books over his more than three decades of fantasy writing. In other potted news, apparently Chinese pirates have been distributing Chinese language versions of the new Harry Potter book, as translations were scheduled to be made available later than the English version. Sounds like a flaw in the bizarre security plan which was part of the hype for the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince book launch.
