J.K. Rowling just announced the story of “Harry Potter” isn’t over. The Wizarding World, and muggles, will soon be receiving brand-new stories of the world famous wizard!

Harry Potter’s adventures came to a close in 2007, with the release of “The Deathly Hallows.” Since then, “The Boy Who Lived” lived on in several successful feature films and spin-off books. However, now it seems Potter will be receiving even more stories. Specifically, four brand-new “Harry Potter” books in the form of eBook editions.

After Rowling penned the original eight novels, they were followed by a series of spin off books. These included: “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” “Quidditch Through the Ages,” and “Tales of the Beedle Bard.”

Three years ago, J.K. added a series of short stories to the Harry Potter universe. These included “Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide,” “Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power,” “Politics and Pesky Poltergeists” and “Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies,” added in eBook format only.

Recently, Rowling announced, via Pottermore, that these four short stories will arrive this June:

  • “Harry Potter, A History of Magic – A Journey Through Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts”
  • “Harry Potter, A History of Magic – A Journey Through Potions and Herbology”
  • “Harry Potter, A History of Magic – A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy”
  • “Harry Potter, A History of Magic – A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures”

With text book-like covers, these new editions will only be available electronically. The first two titles premiering June 27, on the Pottermore website for $2.99 a piece.

“The series features four bitesize reads, each themed by Hogwarts lessons, and will take you back in time once again to learn about the traditional folklore and magic at the heart of the ‘Harry Potter’ stories, accompanied by some new, gorgeous line drawings from London-based artist Rohan Daniel Eason. You may remember Harry Potter – A History of Magic and the family edition, Harry Potter – A Journey Through A History of Magic, which came out back in 2017. . . These eBook shorts are adapted from the audiobook and are a chance to absorb the colourful characters and curious incidents of the real history of magic in a more compact form – perfect for the train or whatever Muggle transport you prefer.” –Pottermore

In addition to being released on Pottermore, these magical manifestations will also be available on Amazon (US & UK), Apple, and Kobo.

    Only seven novels in original books Michael, not eight as you mention in your blog.

    Technically correct. I was counting “Harry Potter and The Cursed Child” as part of the original story line (vs the Fantastic Beast characters/time line). Cursed Child is officially the eighth story in the Harry Potter series. However it is a sequel and not one of the original novels. Thank you for the correction.
