> I'm curious. Has anyone heard anything about differences in how DWJ's
books have been received (by the public and reviewers) as reprints compared
to when they came out originally?  Was Harry Potter's popularity the impetus
for DWJ's books being reprinted?  How did the reprints come about?  Was it
DWJ's editor's idea?

I think it would be fair to say that her editor at HarperCollins, Stella
Paskins, had long harboured a dream of publishing DWJ, and that the HP
phenomenon played its part in enabling her to persuade HarperCollins buy up
the DWJ backlist.
