The first book MuggleNet authored and published, What Will Happen in Harry Potter 7: Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Falls in Love, and How Will the Adventure Finally End, spent six months at the top of the New York Times Children’s Best Seller list, where it reached the number two spot. This was followed by three more over the next four years, including a second New York Times bestseller: MuggleNet.com’s Harry Potter Should Have Died: Controversial Views from the #1 Fan Site. After a ten-year hiatus, MuggleNet reentered the publishing world in 2020 thanks to an ongoing partnership with publisher Topix Media Lab. Four books and several magazines later, we are intent on securing our place in the publishing world for many years to come.

We find Dumbledore’s hand in every seeming coincidence, and we consider the impossible decisions he had to make.
