J.K. Rowling will release 12 Harry Potter short stories this month


From ew, This year has been one of surprises from J.K. Rowling, and the Harry Potter author is closing 2014 out in a similar way. On Friday, the author announced, via an email to Pottermore users, a series of 12 short stories from her wizarding world to commemorate the 12 days of Christmas. Starting December 12, new installments will be posted at 8 a.m. ET. and will involve “wonderful writing by J.K. Rowling in Moments from Half-Blood Prince, shiny gold Galleons and even a new potion or two.”

Rowling says at least one of the stories will focus on Potter’s rival, Draco Malfoy. Back on Halloween, Rowling wrote 5,000 words for Pottermore about another auxiliary Potter character, Dolores Umbridge.

Does this stuff get leaked or do we have to become Pottermore users to read it? Anyone read the Dolores Umbridge story? When does it take place?

I read her book A Casual Vacancy over the summer and it was well-written and engaging but the story was largely ugly and mean-spirited.

I think you have to join Pottermore in order to read them. It is free to join I guess, haven't done it myself.
