Read in January, 2011

This is incomplete (i.e., a new chapter is published every month or so), and deeply in need of a good editor. However, the premise and execution make it worth reading despite the flaws, especially for anyone interested in either Harry Potter or in epistemology, philosophy, or rationality. The book is basically a complete reworking of The Sorcerer's Stone which asks the simple question, "What would happen if Harry Potter was very intelligent?"
