J.K. Rowling has released a new 'Harry Potter' story online - The Verge

By Jacob Kastrenakes

J.K. Rowling has written a new story about Harry Potter, featuring the character as an adult for the first time since the conclusion of her book series nearly seven years ago. The story is the latest in a series about the the Quidditch World Cup that Rowling has been writing over at Pottermore for a few months now in anticipation of the actual World Cup. Written from the perspective of gossip journalist Rita Skeeter — a name that's also out of the Harry Potter books — the column runs across details on Harry at age 34, as well as his wife, his closest friends, and a few other of the series' recurring characters.


There's not necessarily a lot for fans to take away — these are mostly surface level observations and sketchy information from a gossip columnist, after all — but there are a few new details on what Harry, Hermione, and Ron have all been up to in the years since Rowling left them. That's certainly more than fans have been expecting, as Rowling has said in the past that she's done with Harry's story. Don't expect her to break the rule again anytime soon though: Rowling's spokesperson tells The Bookseller that she has "no plans" to write additional Potter stories.
