Whether it’s the effect from a concealment charm or just plain natural stealth, J.K. Rowling’s suddenly published new writing set in the world of Harry Potter.
Now, before you get hyped and start salivating at the mouth, there are some things you should know:
1. The piece is called History of the Quidditch World Cup, and it’s not a direct prequel or sequel to the HP series. Rather, it’s in the same vein as other companion novellas Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them and Quidditch Through the Ages.
2. The first half has been published online. For free. BRILLIANT.
3. It’s only available right now on Pottermore.com, of course, and you do need an account to read it. The good news is that signing up is painless and getting started on your journey to wizard or witchhood is actually pretty darn fun. Of course, if you want to skip discovering the wand for you or choosing a pet, you can go right to new stuff.
If you’re a fan of magic, even just the tiniest little nub, do yourself a favour and check out Part 1 of new Harry Potter literature. Part 2 is set to be released this coming Friday, March 21!
