Harry Potter fans are in for a treat as JK Rowling’s Pottermore publishing will release four ebooks next month, which are reportedly “bitesize” non-fiction. The new installments will explore “the traditional folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories”. This will be much like the author’s previous “extra content” dispatches, such as “Harry Potter: A History of Magic.”
“Prepare to delve deeper into the rich history of magic (be it our own Muggle history, or the magical world created by J.K. Rowling) with this new series of eBook shorts, inspired by the British Library exhibition and its companion books, Harry Potter: A History of Magic,” the Pottermore anouncement reads.
The four e-books will also include manuscript pages, few detailed notes and sketches, according to Pottermore and they give the reader “a chance to absorb the colourful characters and curious incidents of the real history of magic in a more compact form.”
The first pair, themed on Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts, and Potions and Herbology, respectively, will be published on the 27th of June, the rest will follow shortly after.
