Potterheads, it just keeps getting better. It was just announced that we can expect to have three more Harry Potter stories releasing next month! The 3 short stories will be available as eBooks and are a part of a new series called “Pottermore Presents…” The stories do not focus on Harry and friends but will instead focus on Hogwarts and all of the secrets the magical school holds. J.K. Rowling said after the release of the Cursed Child that Harry’s story is done. Sad face. But alas, the world of Harry Potter is not done!
Pottermore shared some interesting information about the short stories:
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.
Finally, in Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies, Pottermore celebrates the colourful 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.
The stories are all written by Rowling herself, which is so important! And we have Pottermore to really thank for facilitating the release of the eBooks. All three stories will release on the same day, Sept. 6th. Can you imagine anything better after getting Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them all in the same year? Harry Potter overload! I have said it before and will say it again: It is a great time to be a Potterhead!!
Be sure to be ready to download these short stories on Sept. 6th. They should cost about $3 USD each and will be available directly from Pottermore as well as the bigger retailers. They are also available for pre-order now.
