We're pleased to announce that the compendium from Terminus, titled Terminus: Collected Papers on Harry Potter, 7-11 August 2008
, is now available. E-mail announcements are winging their way to you now, but inevitably, some owls will get lost, so we're spreading the word here too.
We greatly appreciated your patience with us as we worked on publishing the compendium, and we hope that you'll enjoy the final product. Many presenters contributed their analyses and articles, and the book includes perspectives on Harry Potter as part of the curriculum, an analysis of the wizarding world's legal system, criticism of gender roles in the series, sets of questions from roundtable discussions, and many additional essays. You can review the table of contents by visiting the Terminus compendium page here: http://www.terminus2008.org/compendium/
You can order a copy of the Terminus compendium via the link above, and as other retail outlets include the book in their catalogs, we'll update our listings. At present, we've made the compendium available through our print-on-demand outlet, Lulu, though we expect it to be available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and others at a later date. In the meantime, if you purchase through Lulu before May 31, 2010, and use the coupon code FLOWERS at checkout, you'll receive 10% off the compendium's price.
Thank you again to all of the compendium's contributors. We hope that you'll enjoy the collection as much as we have! If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail us at email@example.com.
Finally, I wanted to remind you that Sirens, a conference about women in fantasy (as readers, writers, and characters), is celebrating its second year this October in Vail, Colorado. Our guests this year include Marie Brennan, Holly Black, and Terri Windling. Programming proposals will be accepted through May 10, and we'd love to have you in attendance. For more information, the website at http://www.sirensconference.org
has registration, travel, and event details.
