A day for different stuff.
I have not indulged my obsession with science-fiction and fantasy here. Well, not much. Lately. Regardless, there were two headlines that caught my attention this morning from the SciFi Channel website.
First, J. K. Rowling will be starting the final installment of her Harry Potter series in January. There’s no completion date or publication date mentioned, but they’d better hurry or the three actors who play the leads in the movies will be too old! Daniel Radcliffe’s voice has already started to change, for pity’s sake! And, don’t even get me started on Emma Watson. (Did you know there are wackos out there who have a countdown until she turns eighteen? Oh, I’m so glad I’m not her father.)
The second headline that caught me was about a show that hasn’t aired yet, called The Book of Daniel. It’s about an Episcopal priest that has a drug problem, who’s married to an alchoholic, and has conversations with Christ wherein he apparently sees Jesus and hears His response. Okay, I get why this is a headline and all, but, uh, on the SciFi Channel website? Anyway, after reading the article, I may have to look out for the show when it hits TV next month. Sounds like my kind of show.
So, there you have it. These are the things I think about first thing in the morning and queue to post late in the afternoon.


  1. I don’t think its a big deal that Daniel’s voice is changing, because that is what happens to adolescents. Most voices change around 14-15-16. Some later, some earlier. Every boy is different. In Goblet of Fire he was 14 so it will be ok. By the last movie Harry is 17. I think it would be too jarring to suddenly have three new actors. I don’t think I’d like it much.

  2. I, like a zillion other people, can’t wait for book 7, especially since Harry is becoming even more of a modern day superhero, what with the having to be single for fear of retribution upon his loved one.
