Potter Inspires Writers and Rock Groups

The Wall Street Journal Online recently published an interesting article on stories written by fans based on popular books, TV series and/or movies. According to the Journal, fanfiction based on the Harry Potter books is "by far the biggest source for fan fiction stories on the Web now, dwarfing franchises such as Star Wars."

And speaking of inspiration, the Harry Potter phenomenon is also responsible for the creation of quite a few "Wizard Rock" bands: Harry and the Potters, Draco and the Malfoys (who's repertoire includes a song entitled "My Dad is Rich"), The Remus Lupins, The Hermione Crookshanks Experience, The Whomping Willows and The Sectumsempras... to name but a few!

All of the above Harry Potter inspired wizard rock bands apparently have MySpace pages where you can listen to some of their most popular songs... so why not kick back, relax and go and listen to a few while you nibble on some chocolate frogs!
