Cool, thanks Daniel. I shall keep my eye open for them.

I should say that normally I don't read fantasy. Hard science fiction,
science fact, and computer manuals making up most of my reading material,
but I have had so many friends recommend Harry Potter stories to me that I
decided to give it a go. I was very pleasantly surprised.

Best wishes,
