Three More Harry Potter Books Announced, Will Shed New Light on Magical World

    J.K. Rowling recently said Harry Potter's story is likely over after The Cursed Child. While that may be true, fans of the magical series are getting more books to read--and soon.
    Rowling today announced a new set of ebook shorts under the umbrella of "Pottermore Presents." These are "bite-sized" digital books that will "dig deep into the Harry Potter stories." Some of the material will be taken from previously published items on Pottermore, while there will also be new writing from Rowling. Overall, the stories will offer new insights into Harry Potter stories, settings, and characters.
    [​IMG]The book's covers were designed by Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, who were also behind the Harry Potter film artwork.
    Here are the names and official descriptions for the three books:
    Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide (79 pages): 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, Political, and Pesky Poltergeists (63 pages): 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 (68 pages): 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.
    One of the books, probably the Hogwarts-specific one, will also see Rowling share her opinion on the polarizing character Professor Umbridge.
    All three books will be available to buy through digital stores on September 6 at a variety of retailers for $3 each, as well as via the Harry Potter fansite Pottermore. In addition to English, they will be available in French, German, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish.
    Go to Pottermore to see a list of retailers that are now accepting preorders.
    The latest Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, is the script from the stage play of the same name. It sold four million physical copies in its first week.
    Looking ahead, the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, comes to theaters in December. It stars Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne as main character Newt Scamander.
