The Harry Potter Lexicon is an encyclopedia of Harry Potter canon material. It was founded in July 2000 by Steve Vander Ark, who has since gained notoriety for attempting to publish the contents of the Lexicon against the wishes of J.K. Rowling. (See Harry Potter Lexicon Trial.)
The Lexicon is a winner of J. K. Rowling's Fan Site Award. Rowling said, before she brought legal issue: : "This is such a great site that I have been known to sneak into an internet café while out writing and check a fact rather than go into a bookshop and buy a copy of Harry Potter (which is embarrassing). A website for the dangerously obsessive; my natural home."
