On September 28, A Biologically Male Magical White Kid: and the Book You Thought You'd Already Read was released and made available from all good (and many bad) bookshops. The result of just over a year of writing, this parody is no tribute to the Harry Potter series, but a book that isn’t afraid to call J.K. Rowling transphobic. At 30% longer than the original Philosopher’s Stone (Sorcerer’s Stone), the book remains close to the original story while including hundreds of changes — some subtle and some much more noticeable — to lampoon and parody the series as a whole, popular culture, current events, and Rowling’s never-ending attempts to retroactively add to her world in an attempt to make it appear diverse all along. While the print versions of the book will remain on-sale indefinitely (with American editions on the way) for anyone who prefers to hold a physical book in their hands, in order to let as many people as possible enjoy this satirical story, I have taken the decision to publish the whole book over the course of the next three weeks, starting with Chapter One (Of Course, The Boy is White) today. New chapters will be published each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until Christmas Eve, making the whole book available to read for free on Medium, Reddit, and my own website — for anyone who can’t wait, the entire book is still available to buy as a digital e-book alongside hardcover and paperback editions. While there is no cost to read the book as it’s made available online, if you’re in a position to do so, please consider sending a tip through Ko-fi — writing comedy like this is my job (and this is no short parody, it really is over 100k words) and like 99% of creatives right now, even the smallest contributions can make a difference to help us survive and continue doing what we do.
