J.K. Rowling recently said that Harry Potter and The Cursed Child Parts One and Two will most likely be the last book for Harry. That may still be true, but we will get another look into the world of Harry. She revealed that she will release three upcoming e-book shorts that tell the secret history of Hogwarts known as Pottermore Presents. That's the good news. The better news is that you won't have to wait very long. The three e-books will be released on September 6th via digital e-book retailers and Pottermore, J.K. Rowling's website for the Wizarding World. Each story will feature stories and details from the Pottermore archives and will feature new stories, as well.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the play and book, debuted in July. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the upcoming film will debut in November. Find more information at Pottermore. Read descriptions via Pottermore below.

"Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide dives into the nooks and crannies of the beloved wizarding school itself, unfurling everything from details about the Hogwarts ghosts, to what happens when the Sorting Hat can’t decide on a student’s house.

Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Political and Pesky Poltergeists explores the darker roots of the wizarding world. You’ll learn more about the troubles that faced the Ministry of Magic, the horrors of Azkaban prison and enjoy an entirely new original piece of writing by J.K. Rowling on Horace Slughorn.

Finally, in Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies, Pottermore celebrates the colourful staff of Hogwarts. There’s more to discover about Care of Magical Creatures teacher Silvanus Kettleburn, as well as another new piece of writing from J.K.
