It’s been an exciting year to be a Harry Potter fan! First we had the news that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child would be the next adventure in the story, then it was announced that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them would provide a movie spin off trilogy to the original series.
The Potterverse just keeps getting bigger and bigger, and news from Amazon today is that there are three new short stories from the Potterverse available on pre-order now! The three stories are part of a new Pottermore Presents collection and will be released in early September.
Three new short stories! This is amazing news for fans of the series who can now expand the Harry Potter collection yet further! Can you tell we’re excited?
Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide
We all waited for our letter to Hogwarts and this may be the next best thing as we take a look at the castle and all its secrets, find out about its more permanent residents, and venture around the Hogwarts grounds.
Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists
We’ve already had more than a glimpse at just how terrible dark magic can be, and now you get another look into the power and politics behind the series. Now you can find out the ruthless roots of Professor Umbridge, the facts about all the Ministers for Magic, a closer look into Horace Slughorn’s early years as potion master and much more.
Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies
I keep calling for a story about the Marauders, and while this isn’t it, it does cover some of the more heroic acts from the Potterverse, featuring Harry Potter, Minerva McGonagall, Remus Lupin and Sybill Trelawney, as well as new character, reckless, beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn.
I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter universe, as readers to this page will well know, and so I hurried off immediately to pre-order all three titles and find they are only available in eBook format. A word to our dear Jo… Can we please have at least paperback versions to follow?
