Voldemort, Merlin and Aslan star in U.K.'s spellbinding wizard stamps

This week, Britain's Royal Mail unveiled a series of postage stamps that pay tribute to the world's most famous wizards, witches and warlocks—Charlie Sheen not included.

While it's wonderful that lesser-known warlocks like Discworld's Nanny Ogg and Rincewind were honored right next to titanic literary figures like Merlin and Dumbledore, I couldn't help but wonder: Where the heck is Gandalf? Or Saruman? Or Doctor Strange? Or Willow Rosenberg?

Hence the inherent problem with making lists like this: You will always leave someone worthy out.
