Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality
What if Harry Potter had been raised by a loving stepmother? What if his stepfather was a scientist? What happens when somebody tries to analyze magic with scientific methods? What happens if an eleven year old boy is too smart for his own good?
A piece of fan fiction, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality by "Less Wrong" answers those questions - and makes quite a good read. If you are into fantasy books and science, you might really love it. I did.
But be warned: only read this if you've read all seven Harry Potter books by J.K.Rowling, because the fan fiction piece contains lots of spoilers.
So far 60 chapters for varying length have been published, and just a few more to be written before the first year ends. I look forward to the final chapters.
