Pottermore—the “digital heart of the Wizarding World”—has just confirmed the upcoming release of three eBooks designed to transport fans even deeper into the beloved world of Harry Potter.
Pottermore.com describes Pottermore Presents as “a series of bite-sized eBooks that dig deep into the Harry Potter stories, with titbits taken from Pottermore’s archives and original writing from J.K. Rowling. The series offers Harry Potter fans added insights into the stories, settings and characters and were all lovingly curated by Pottermore.”
“It’s been a wonderful curation exercise,” Anna Rafferty, director of product, creative and content at Pottermore, said in a statement. “We read through everything in our archives, took pieces written by J.K. Rowling and the Pottermore editorial team, and sewed it all together – from the delicious little snippets of wizarding world lore, to the longer narratives on characters and magical phenomena, and categories of themed miscellany started to emerge in our thinking.”
The three books are entitled Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide; Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power Politics and Pesky Poltergeists; and Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies. They will be available to download on September 6, 2016.
