Titular Death Wish

The latest Harry Potter book will be called Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. How long did it take for them to whip this up? Three minutes? “Hallow” is more commonly used as a verb and the juxtaposition of “death” before “hallows” suggests that any mass killing of major characters (as suggested in other reports) will be less than reverential.


  1. Dude, I could be wrong, and I often am, but I think it’s HP and the Deathly HOLLOWs, not Hallows. Not that it’s a big diff.

    Yrs, B. Dagger Lee

  2. Yes, it is actually Hallows and, in Arthurian legend, they are the royal regalia carried by the King, or the objects sought by someone such as a ‘Grail Quester.’ In other words: the Horcruxes.

    Yes. Potter geek in da house.
