‘Harry Potter For Nerds 2’ Available Today! Check out the Booklaunch Page and the MuggleNet Academia Podcast with Travis Prinzi and Kathryn McDaniel

2cover red front“Exciting Times for Serious Readers of Harry Potter!” I don’t know how many times I’ve said that in the last six months, but today is the proof of the assertion. Not only do we have a new Cormoran Strike novel to enter into and experience, but the latest of this remarkable season of Potter Punditry, Harry Potter For Nerds 2, has been released. Talk about a conjunction of the stars!

For Nerds 2, edited by Kathryn McDaniel of Marietta College and Travis Prinzi, author of Harry Potter and Imagination, features 16 essays by the best readers and writers in fandom and academia. Here are two great ways to get to know this book and its offerings — and a fun incentive to buy the book during its launch (from today to Halloween).

First, check out the For Nerds 2 Booklaunch page. There, in addition to the expected raves, Amazon and Barnes and Noble links, and book description, you can sit back and enjoy Prof McDaniel talk with Prof McDaniel (her brother!) about the new collection — both are contributors — and about right and wrong in Harry Potter.

Then, head on over to MuggleNet Academia to listen to Keith Hawk and me speaking with Travis and Kathryn about what makes this anthology an important item for serious readers to get their hands on. Or, for your convenience, just scroll down and have a listen right here. Fun show with a lot of meat —

For NerdsAnd, if you still need incentive after that, Unlocking Press has made this offer for everyone who buys a hard copy or eBook before Halloween. Send your proof of purchase to me at John at HogwartsProfessor dot com and they’ll send you a link to the Harry Potter For Nerds members only website. There you’ll have access to free videos and live or recorded discussions with the world’s finest Potter Pundits (next week features a talk by Dr Amy H. Sturgis with Kathryn, just for starters).

So… check out the Booklaunch page and the MuggleNet Academia podcast below — and then buy the book or e-text for its own merits and the free extras you can download and enjoy for the six weeks following! Write and tell me about your purchase so I can tell you the secret word to open the members only treasure house —
