The 51-year-old author is taking readers back into the world of wizardry with three new books, Pottermore.com
, announced on Wednesday.
The series of e-books, which will be available through online retailers beginning Sept. 6, are described as a collection of short stories exploring a "different Hogwarts-related theme."
Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide, will offer a deeper look into the "nooks and crannies" of the school, while Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Political and Pesky Poltergeists delves into the "darker side of wizarding world," including horror stories from Azkaban prison. An original piece from Rowling on Horace Slughorn will also be featured in the book.
The third book, Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies, will focus on the Hogwarts staff. Potter fans will learn more about Care of Magical Creatures teacher Silvanus Kettleburn, as well as another original Rowling musing, this one on Hoggwarts' head mistress, Minerva McGonagall.
Nearly 20 years after Rowling released her first Potter
novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
, the magical tale has expanded to movies, stage productions
, and even theme parks.
