    J.K. Rowling Writes Potter PrequelHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Interesting.

    But only 800 words? Not much of a prequel. I wonder how much they'll charge for it.

    It'll probably cover something with Voldermort and/or Harry's parents.

        I just saw this too!

        A bunch of authors are writing one-page stories, which will then be compiled into a book, so we the "regular people", will actually get to read it. Cool! This story will actually take place before Harry was born.

            She wrote this on postcard size and it concerns the Marauders, mostly James and Sirius. II had not read about the other stuff but it does sound interesting. However the way that is written does not specifically say that the other stories will be about Harry Potters world. It could just be a collection of short stories about anything.

            So far the only book that J K Rowling gave her approval is a book about Harry's oldest son, James, and his first year at Hogwarts. It is titled "James Potter and the Hall of Elders Crossing". The author is a has it as a PDF Download for free and that is why she gave her permission to go ahead with it. I have read it and it is very good.

            In September of this year the second book which is James' second year and will also have Albus in it as well will be done and ready for PDF download. I will be reading that one as well.

            Here is the link to the site and you can download the book and at the top is a link to the new book, "James Potter and the Gatekeepers Curse".

                Bleh i have no interest in Harry's kids.

                I don't think the other stories will be HP stories.

                  That's too bad as the first book is really a great read and a fun book. And Harry, Ron, Hermoine, Nevile, McGonegal and other familiar characters are in the book as well. Also an American Magical University is also introduced and I thought it was a great idea. James meets new friends, and meets a new group of mischief makers led by Teddy Tonks. There is a lot magic, mischief and mystery as well. Another one of the reasons JK gave him permission is she read and said he had captured Harry's world perfectly, did not have anything inappropriate and she loved it. He hopes to have 7 books as well, one for each year of school.

                    Sounds interesting! I'll have to check out both the prequel and the one Lost Boy linked to.

                      Maybe, but 400 million books sold and $4.5 billion in movie tickets is a hell of a trick.
