  • RobertLumley said “Has EY really not read the seventh book? That’s really surprising. I wouldn’t have expected him to write a fan fiction when he hadn’t finished the series. Is that the only book he hasn’t read?on 2012-01-03

  • gwern said “Isaac: hm…. maybe. but I think if Eliezer had meant to allude to it with that line, he would’ve said so just now when the topic came up – no point in being coy about spoilers if it already happened, right?on 2012-01-05
