J.K. Rowling to release 3 Harry Potter-based short story collections
HARRY POTTER fans have a lot to dive into this year with the recently released play, "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child", now on shelves and the upcoming FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM hitting cinemas in November. That's just the tip of the iceberg as Pottermore is releasing a set of short stories in the form of eBooks based in the Potter universe.
The books themselves will use tidbits taken from the Pottermore archives, as well as original writings from J.K. Rowling, in order to add insight into settings and characters introduced on Pottermore. Check out information from Pottermore on the 3 books below!
- "Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide" dives into the nooks and crannies of the beloved wizarding school itself, unfurling everything from details about the Hogwarts ghosts, to what happens when the Sorting Hat can’t decide on a student’s house.
- "Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists" explores the darker roots of the wizarding world. You’ll learn more about the troubles that faced the Ministry of Magic, the horrors of Azkaban prison and enjoy an entirely new original piece of writing by J.K. Rowling on Horace Slughorn.
- "Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies" celebrates the colorful staff of Hogwarts. There’s more to discover about Care of Magical Creatures teacher Silvanus Kettleburn, as well as another new piece of writing from J.K. Rowling on Minerva McGonagall, and her involvement in the second wizarding war.
