Rowling toys with breaking of the Potter spell

The Boston Globe published my letter today:

RE “To J.K., please leave Harry alone” (Good Life, July 30): The fantasy stories that shaped my childhood took place not in Hogwarts but a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Still, I feel Eryn Carlson’s pain as she worries that the new Harry Potter stories will weaken the canon. May she be spared the disappoinment that my generation experienced when the “Star Wars” prequels were released. Let’s hope J.K. Rowling learned from George Lucas’s mistakes and “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is no Jar Jar Binks.
