This page was intended to remain "under construction" whilst all the different aspects of the books are linked together. Sol's "Welcome page" gives details about the different areas of the site, along with Harry Potter book reviews and film reviews - and the main Area 13 index page gives an overview of our reasons for creating this intricate guide to JK Rowling's Harry Potter books.
The massive amount of set-up work to engineer the interlinking of tens of thousands of keywords (characters, magic and spells, locations, items, creatures) across all seven books was finally completed back in 2008. However in the light of ongoing uncertainties about 'Harry Potter copyrights' (affecting all websites or site areas with Harry-Potter-related themes), a 'Special Note' was written on 1st July 2008, explaining the possible issues if we were to work further on creating this resource.
However that overview provides a unique insight into *why* the Harry Potter books have been so successful - as well as showing "how to write like J K Rowling". The success of the Harry Potter 7-book series was unlike anything the world has ever previously seen. How did she do it? Take a look.
