Welcome to the 52nd Harry Potter Carnival! Please be aware that this carnival and outgoing links will contain spoilers. You are advised not to read if you haven’t finished DH.
Before we begin, I would like to remind submitters that they should probably check in here at the Pensieve periodically for announcements about the Carnival.
JKR has been talking about HP in many places since the book was released, but perhaps the most illuminating information for fans can be found in this web chat on July 30, 2007.
Jeremy Bruno has a bone to pick with JKR.
My favorite chapter of DH was the chapter in which Harry sifts through Snape’s memories in the Pensieve. The image of Snape and Lily talking about Hogwarts, magic, and Dementors under a tree really stayed with me. I found a great rendition of this moment done by theyoungdoyler:
Theories and Speculation
Thought that now the series was over all the speculation would cease? Not likely! Check out this editorial at Mugglenet for a few of the questions DH raised.
Rather than share one post, I would like to share a site for this edition’s segment of Hermione’s library. Wendy submitted a couple of posts from the Gryffindor Gazette for the Carnival, and while they didn’t quite fit in (her link to the Jonathan Ross interview has already been posted here, and I don’t tend to post about other things the HP movie stars are doing), her site is really impressive, and I hope you will check it out.
Grrlscientist, frequent contributor to the Carnival, shares her thoughts about Harry Potter. I absolutely loved the book myself– my favorite in the series. I haven’t had as much of a chance to write about it yet as I’d like with work this summer, but stay tuned.
Yehuda Berlinger contributes the definitive list of Harry Potter games.
Just for Fun
Meredith Mathews shares a compendium of links for Potter fans.
Judith Withers shares her humorous look at Harry’s thoughts on the movies.
Thanks to everyone for the submissions! To submit Potterica for the next carnival, use my carnival submission form. Please note the category for which it should be considered. Deadline is 10:00 P.M. Friday, August 17. The next HP carnival will appear Saturday, August 18. Deconstructions of DH and spoilers are OK for submission to the August 18 carnival.
