Lexicon staff at Prophecy this week


Steve, Bel, Paula and I will be at Prophecy this week; if you see us wave Hi! If you’re wondering why my character pages are stuck in a time warp, well, that’s why. Steve has three presentations this week:

Playing in Jo’s World
Spend a little time looking at this magical world that Jo created … and looking at what it means to be a fan playing in that world. You know, if you’re not careful, you just may find yourself trapped…

The End of the Tale (a fan’s overview of the entire series)
Done. Finished. Time to pack up our quills and go home. Or is it? Now that we have it all — all the answers, every mystery solved, Snape finally unmasked — it’s time to take stock of the whole series. Join Steve Vander Ark for a slightly off-kilter fan’s-eye trip through the entire canon.

Welcome to the Wizarding World
Travel the length and breadth of Britain in search of the places which inspired Rowling’s stories. Explore Devon, poke around London, and even take a trip north to the Highlands of Scotland to hunt for Hogwarts School … and find a little bit of magic.

We’re really looking forward to this week, but also getting back to work on the Lexicon when we get home.

    I had the pleasure of seeing Steve’s presentation at Sonorus in CA. Absolutely great. I would love to hear his new talk “The End of the Tale”. Be sure to catch all of his discussions, if you can! Have fun everyone!

  • Remi

    I wish I was there also!
    May I echo the sentiments of previous writers and ask if it’s possible for the sessions to be recorded for the Lexicon fans who couldn’t attend? Please? Pretty please? With treacle tart on top?

  • Renster

  • pam

    Could we perhaps have a transcript of Steve’s presentations?

  • Lisa

    I can’t speak for Steve, but I do know that audio recordings are available [the following is paraphrased from the Prophecy website]: Prophecy has arranged for Content Management Corporation to audio record formal programming lectures and panels! Recorded presentations will be compiled onto CD-ROM or online formats available for purchase. The price is $14.00 Canadian for an individual presentation or $179 Canadian for the whole set, and can be paid for by cash, cheque or credit card.

  • Phillip

    Have Fun and travel safe!!!!
