Resurrecting The Harry Potter Prequel

Back in 2008, J.K. Rowling published a handwritten 800 word story to benefit charity. The piece was sold at auction, and hasn't really been available for Potter fans to enjoy. As cool as it might be to read a Harry Potter story in Rowling's handwriting, some parts may be a little tricky to read. So for those who would like to read a typed copy, there is a link to a pdf below.

 The typed story can be read here.

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child!

The eighth story is finally here! Written as a script for the original play, the story focuses on Harry and his son, Albus.

"Nineteen years after the Battle Of Hogwarts...

It was always difficult being Harry Potter, and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry Of Magic, a husband, and a father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggled with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: darkness comes from unexpected places."
