Irving, Rowling, and King

Now that must have been a fund-raiser to attend! In the same room you have John Irving, Steven King, and J.K. Rowling. They held a joint news conference before doing a charity reading at New York's Radio City Music Hall.

There, according to the CNN story, Irving and King begged Rowling not to kill off Harry Potter in her final novel.

Speaking of which, I've really got to start avoiding articles like this. I don't want spoilers and hate that she keeps getting asked about them. In this article, she's revealed yet another spoiler--though she doesn't name names or indicate who it is that the fate she mentions befalls.

Rowling joked back to the other two authors that she feels she's just "toughening" her readers up to go on and read Irving and King's works. "It's a cruel literary world out there," she said.

Oh, and she made no promises about whether Harry would survive.
