FYI: Orson Scott Card Slams J. K. Rowling

Tomorrow is the last day of classes, but it’s not too late to bring up a new topic.  Many of my students in “Intro to Literary Study” were fascinated by Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game, so I thought they might appreciate hearing about Card’s dismissal of J.K. Rowling’s suit against a fan-created reference work devoted to the world of Harry Potter.

The author of the Ender series has some choice words about the author of the Harry Potter series. Note that he’s not actually accusing her of stealing his ideas, he’s just pointing out how ridiculous he feels her claims are.
