We’re still adding new information from Half-Blood Prince. Lisa has the new characters added and Michele has been adding new spells and magic items. John has been working on the Reader’s Guide pages for the new book, listing all the new information in chapter-by-chapter format.
You’ve been very helpful as well. I’ve received a lot of good suggestions for the etymology of the word “horcrux” and Michele is working on a page about them which will be posted soon. I have received a number of emails with suggestions for various edits and things to add. Those emails are always appreciated. I might not get around to answering every one of the emails, however. There are a lot of them and I have limited time. Please accept my thanks for your interest and my apologies for not being able to answer everyone. At the moment I don’t have my communications manager, so I’ll be doing the best I can on my own.
I am looking for someone to work on a graphics project for the Lexicon. I’d like to redo some of the maps in the atlas section in more of a wizard style, so I need someone who would be interested in what we might call “Wizarding Cartography.” If you feel that this is something you’d like to work on, please send me an email with a little about yourself and a small (.jpg) example of the style you’d use to draw the maps. Send your emails to this address: [email protected] and put “maps” in the subject header. Please note that any maps used by the Lexicon cannot include any copyrighted images but must be original work by the artist.
The Lexicon is being edited constantly by the best staff of researchers and writers in the world. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to Lisa, Michele, John, Josh, and Belinda for their outstanding work, especially over the last week. I’ve been away from the computer for most of that time, camping by Lake Michigan, and now I’m heading off to Britain on Wednesday to attend Accio. What a great feeling, knowing that the Lexicon is in good hands.
