J.K. Rowling Inks World Cup Potter Story


The Quidditch World Cup Final is the pretense for Harry Potter’s latest adventure, a 1,500-word story available to subscribers of Pottermore, Rowling’s fan club website. “Dumbledore’s Army Reunites,” is written like a gossip column from the Daily Prophet, the wizarding world’s newspaper of record. Electric Literature says the story featuring the thirty-something characters is likely our last glimpse of the Potter crew in middle age.
