The creator of Harry Potter, the boy who lived, is determined that he should never, ever die. J.K. Rowling will release three "eBook shorts" that will expand upon different parts of the Harry Potter universe, publishers said on in a Wednesday announcement on Rowling's Harry Potter website, Pottermore.

The trio of books will be released on Sept. 6. According to Pottermore, "each explores a different Hogwarts-related theme." 

Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide will explain some of the intricacies of the famous wizarding school; Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists will discuss dark magic; and Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies will introduce readers to the backstories of different members of the Hogwarts faculty.

It looks like we have a celebrity in our midst.  Giphy

But it doesn't seem as though all of the eBooks will be totally original writing — according to Pottermore, the books will include "titbits taken from Pottermore's archives and original writing from J.K. Rowling."

Will Harry Potter himself make an appearance in the stories? Probably not — Rowling said in July that the recent release of the script of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child may have been the last work to feature the series' star. But hey, the world is a magical place, so never say never.
