“J.K. Rowling, No: The Opportunism of ‘History of Magic in North America'”


At Tor.com, Chris Lough writes about the problems with J.K. Rowling’s “The History of Magic of North America.” “Fiction is a story we create, and history is a story we find, but the opposite is also true, and this makes the structure of both very similar. In this sense, history isn’t a barrier for Rowling so much as it is a co-writer. This is new territory for Rowling as an author, and the ‘History of Magic in North America’ presents a chilly relationship between the author and her co-writer, with Rowling seemingly unwilling to acknowledge the story developments introduced by history.”
