Steve Vander Ark responds to JKR VS RDR trial verdict
The Grand Rapids Press has spoken with the author of The Harry Potter Lexicon, which just yesterday had its publication halted by a New York City judge. Vander Ark's thoughts after hearing the verdict:
“I've always been a fan of Harry Potter and of Rowling and my hope all along was that we'd find an amicable way to settle this. I'm disappointed, but this is the way it went and I don't hold any ill will at all. It was a question of law over a difference of opinion and, in a way, I'm glad that it's finally over.”
The newspaper notes that Vander Ark is currently in England where he's working on a new book which visits real-life locations placed in the Potter series.
