Good news for Harry Potter fans. Now that she’s put the finishing touches on her first post-Potter novel, J.K. Rowling is turning her attentions to creating a Harry Potter Encyclopedia.
Such a book has been rumored for years, but now that she has the time – and also the fact she wrote a lot of the background stuff for Pottermore, there is enough material to finally make one happen.
According to MTV.com:
Rowling answered a fan question regarding the highly anticipated Potter lexicon on the “frequently asked questions and rumours” page of her website.
“For a long time I have been promising an encyclopaedia of Harry’s world, and I have started work on this now — some of it forms the new content in Pottermore. It is likely to be a time-consuming job, but when finished I shall donate all royalties to charity.”
She was also recently asked if she’d ever write another Harry Potter book and while she said she has no plans to do so – as a writer she could never rule it out.
If she did, it would probably be the biggest book ever.
