J.K. Rowling recently proclaimed that the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child would be her last venture into the Potterverse — but apparently that was not an Unbreakable Vow. Pottermore has announced a forthcoming trio of Potterverse e-books called Pottermore Presents, which will be available in September.
The first volume will be called Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide and it will dive further into background on the Hogwarts ghosts and the Sorting Hat’s struggles. The second, entitled Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Political and Pesky Poltergeists will explore “the horrors of Azkaban,” expand upon the Ministry of Magic corruption, and offer a new short story on Horace Slughorn. The final volume will be called Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies and will focus on the Hogwarts staff, including a new story focusing on “Minerva McGonagall and her involvement in the second wizarding war.”
Between Cursed Child and the film Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, which hits theaters in November, the Harry Potter universe may be the Boy Who Lived Forever — though just like Star Wars, it will prompt Potter fans to debate about what is and isn’t canon.
The Pottermore Presents e-books will be released on September 6th.
