Rating: 5/5 so far
In this case, I think the author’s summary says it best:
Harry Potter has just received his Hogwarts letter, but really doesn’t want to go. After all, who would want to live on a planet of all things? Especially one where the inhabitants still think nuclear energy is an advanced technology. And let’s not forget the 42,000 light year commute.
In my eyes, what gives this story such potential is that it’s the only one I can think of where the sci-fi series being crossed is neither Star Wars nor some other science fiction story incorporating a magic analogue. This is a true crossover between sci-fi and fantasy and that shows both enormous originality and enormous potential.
From what I’ve read so far, I’m greatly looking forward to how Harry and his companions will react to wizarding culture. “The Culture” is just so technologically and socially advanced that wizarding Britain is alien to Harry in the truest sense.
Of course, it was also amusing to watch Dumbledore utterly befuddled by how the various tracking charms react when their target is 42,000 light years away.
