The Great Sniping to Date
Wow. Just when you thought they couldn't come up with any other Harry Potterish books. This one really takes the cake. As described in the press release:
The Great Snape Debate by Amy Berner, Orson Scott Card and Joyce Millman explores whether Hogwarts professor Severus Snape, one of J.K. Rowling's most complicated characters, is a friend or foe of boy wizard Harry Potter. The book's design allows it to make cases for both sides. One half of the book supports Snape, but flip it over and the other half portrays him as a minion for He Who Shall Not Be Named, and a true enemy of Harry's.Once I've gotten past the Orson Scott Card elements of this announcement, there's something else I'm wondering about. Go look this up on Amazon. See anything odd? Say... the date of publication perhaps? Am I reading this wrong or is this book speculating on something that will have already been resolved come July?
