The Monster is dead

A record-breaking 12 million copies will be prepared for the first U.S. printing of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". The release of the seventh and FINAL book in the popular series by British author J.K. Rowling' will also be backed by a multimillion-dollar marketing campaign. Hooray, it is gone!

I must say, I am sick and tired of all the press Harry Potter has been getting everytime a book comes out. Don't get me wrong, I like the movies well enough and it (along with LOTR) has given fantasy books some much needed clout but enough is enough. How about giving some of that attention to other series like the Song of Ice & Fire (The Game of Thrones etc) or The Malazan Books of the Fallen (Deadhouse Gates etc), these are great series as well. How about showing some love to them?
