Web sites add dimension to ‘Potter’

Denise Flaim Newsday

If the books aren’t enough for you, there’s no shortage of sites where you can find Potterheads prognosticating:

www.jkrowling.com – Herself’s very own site. Lots of tidbits if you poke around, including why Harry’s wand is made of holly (tradition is, it repels evil), while Voldemort’s is yew (long lived, but its sap is poisonous).

www.mugglenet.com – Talk about juice: Emerson Spartz, the 19-year-old founder of this authoritative fan site, was one of only two people granted a private interview with Rowling when “Half-Blood Prince” debuted.

www.hp-lexicon.org – What Rowling herself has called “my natural home,” and an indispensable destination if you need to brush up on characters and plot lines. Searchable by key word. it’s positively encyclopedic.
