Pottermore, JK Rowling To Release Three Hogwarts E-Books

 Ready your wands for your next school term at Hogwarts! The encyclopedic news source Pottermore in collaboration with J.K. Rowling has three Hogwarts short stories in the works.

Previously published writing from Pottermore's archives will explore the nooks and crannies of the wizarding world as eBooks. Fans will once again be able to dive further into the wizarding world with stories and J.K. Rowling’s first-person reflections.

The first three titles and summaries of this collection are:
Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide dives into the nooks and crannies of the beloved wizarding school itself, unfurling everything from details about the Hogwarts ghosts, to what happens when the Sorting Hat can’t decide on a student’s house.

Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists explores the darker roots of the wizarding world. You’ll learn more about the troubles that faced the Ministry of Magic, the horrors of Azkaban prison and enjoy an entirely new original piece of writing by J.K. Rowling on Horace Slughorn.

Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies celebrates the colorful staff of Hogwarts with more to discover about Care of Magical Creatures teacher Silvanus Kettleburn, as well as another new piece of writing from J.K. Rowling on Minerva McGonagall and her involvement in the second wizarding war.
The covers of the digital books are designed by MinaLima, the powerhouse duo Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima responsible for the graphic design artwork of the Harry Potter films.

Works previously posted on Pottermore and new never-before-published work from J.K. Rowling will be included in Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Political and Pesky Poltergeists, and Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies. The material was lovingly curated by Pottemore and their editorial team.

Each electronic edition should give readers an hour's long experience. The stories range from 70 to 85 pages long. The small series will offer fans the opportunity to supplement their Harry Potter experience with more details about beloved characters and settings within the wizarding world.

As of now, the only format these stories will be available on is eBooks. There is no further details if the books will be published as hardcopies in the future.

On September 6th, the three stories are going to be made available to purchase on Pottermore and other major book retailers around the world, in nine different languages, including Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
