J.K. Rowling's announcement that she's 'done' with Harry Potter's story truly felt like a mass of escaped Dementors were following us around sapping us of all our energy and enthusiasm for reading.
But, it turns out happiness really CAN be found in the unlikeliest of places, as a series of Pottermore inspired e-books have cropped on J.K Rowling's Amazon page.
The Pottermore Presents Series seems to include three tomes of content already published on the site and some totally new stuff thrown in too. According to the site, the three new publications are due to be released on the 6th of September, so not far off AT ALL.
"These stories of power, politics and pesky poltergeists give you a glimpse into the darker side of the wizarding world, revealing the ruthless roots of Professor Umbridge, the lowdown on the Ministers for Magic and the history of the wizarding prison Azkaban. You will also delve deeper into Horace Slughorn's early years as Potions master at Hogwarts - and his acquaintance with one Tom Marvolo Riddle."
"These stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories' most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K. Rowling also gives us a peek behind the closed curtains of Sybill Trelawney's life, and you'll encounter the reckless, magical-beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn along the way."
"Hogwarts An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide takes you on a journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You'll venture into the Hogwarts grounds, become better acquainted with its more permanent residents, learn more about lessons and discover secrets of the castle . . . all at the turn of a page."
Each of the publications are only available on e-book format and are priced at a very friendly £1.99. It doesn't even need mentioning but we naturally want them all.
