J.K. Rowling Has More To Share About The Wizarding World In 'Pottermore Presents'

Something wicked(ly awesome) this way comes.

Let the magic continue.

A series of ebook shorts called Pottermore Presents, including stories and J.K. Rowling’s continued musings about the wizarding world, is slated to hit digital newsstands on Sept. 6, according to a statement from Pottermore.

The first of the initial three titles will center on Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and is available for preorder now.

The Pottermore Presents series will include J.K. Rowling’s writings from Pottermore as well as new work. They’re all intended to be read in about an hour on digital devices ― perfect for commuters looking for a Potter fix.

Pottermore CEO Susan L. Jurevics said in a statement that the series is intended to “supplement” the Harry Potter books. Jurevics also indicated that the collection will reveal “intricate details of characters’ lives, their histories, as well as [J.K. Rowling’s] inspiration.” 

The first three titles in the Pottermore Presents collection are: 

  1. Short Stories from Hogwarts: Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists: Featuring Horace Slughorn, Harry Potter’s potions master in the last two books of the series, this volume contains details about Dolores Umbridge and Quirinus Quirrell.
  2. Short Stories from Hogwarts: Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies: This installment features Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin, focusing on the former’s involvement in the second wizarding war.

  3. Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide: This will give readers insight into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, including “its more permanent residents, its secrets, its hidden rooms and corridors.”

If you solemnly swear you’re up to no good, you can snag each short for $2.99 at the Pottermore Shop and other digital book retailers.
