About the Book

This book is generated from the source material at http://hpmor.com/. Eliezer Yudkowsky wrote this fanfiction and owns the copyright, I only generated it from the site because I wanted to read the latest chapter on my Kindle and the site wasn't updated. It has been generated with the author's permission.

It is released here free of charge for convenience, and the goal is to have a place for interested readers to be sent electronic versions of the book automatically on each chapter release.
