Greetings, fellow Harry Potter lover, appreciator, admirer and devotee! My name is G. Norman Lippert and I am the author of the stories included in this collection. As you may already have divined, I am not J. K. Rowling, and as such, these stories can only hope to be pale reflections of the marvelous, rich world she has created for us all to play in. Still, some have found a certain degree of delight in reading the stories contained herein (and others, alas, have not, but life is all about risks, is it not?). All I can say is that I had a grand time writing them, and thereby being the first to read them.

Do know, dear reader, that in no way am I attempting, with the release of these tales, to sneak off with any of Ms. Rowling's credit for this inimitable world. As I have said elsewhere, if there is any value in these tales, the credit belongs to Ms. Rowling, and if there is any fault with these stories, the blame falls firmly upon my own shoulders.

Having said all of that, I truly hope you do enjoy these short tales. If you have any comments, critique, questions or concerns regarding them, do feel free to send me a note, or to drop in at the Grotto Keep Forum, where the conversation is always going on.

Thank you for reading!

Your friend and fellow Harry Potter admirer,

G. Norman Lippert (Geo)
