Harry Potter fans rejoice! Put those tissues away and pull yourself together – we have some very exciting news.
It has just been revealed that J.K. Rowling has written three short stories that “explore the dark roots of the wizarding world.” These eBooks will be available next month on Pottermore, and each story will focus on different areas of our beloved Potter universe.
According to the Pottermore, these stories “dig deep into the Harry Potter stories, with tidbits taken from Pottermore’s archives and original writing from J.K. Rowling.”
The first short story, Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide, will revolve around Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We’ll finally find out what happens when the Sorting Hat doesn’t know where to sort a student.
The second story, Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Political and Pesky Poltergeists, will be about everyone’s favourite Slytherin, Professor Horace Slughorn. It will also look at the horrifying conditions of Azkaban prison. We’re all screaming inside because we’ve only been dying to know more since… forever!
And finally, the third story Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies will feature a number of Hogwarts professors, like the magnificent Minerva McGonagall and late werewolf Remus Lupin.
This news comes only weeks after Rowling announced that there will be no more Harry Potter franchise, so we guess that our treasured universe is harder to kill than Voldemort himself.
Either way, we’re not complaining!
