In an article for the Guardian, Shoshana Kessler voices the frustration of millions at the delay in the official opening of the Harry Potter interactive website - Pottermore. Featuring 18,000 words of new text by Rowling and an unprecedented opportunity to virtually explore the Potter universe, Pottermore seems like the Holy Grail for the loyal fans who have been suffering withdrawal symptoms since the last installment in the series was published in 2007. Last July, a million lucky fans were offered access to the site. Seeing Rowling poised at the threshold to this magical kingdom, it is impossible not to think of Willy Wonka, the eccentric gatekeeper to the wondrous chocolate factory. A pledge was made that access to Pottermore would be granted to all the following October. Five months later the site is still in beta mode and will continue to be so indefinitely. But will the children who don't have a golden ticket ever get to see it?
