Rowling ‘Has No Firm Plans’ To Publish Potter Encyclopedia
So the three new books that Bloomsbury are publishing can’t be the encyclopedia. J.K. Rowling has recently updated her website to let people know that she currently no plans to release an encyclopedia in book form, and that for the time being all new Potter information will appear on Pottermore.
This update comes in stark contrast to her previous statement that was released when Rowling announced The Casual Vacancy and relaunched her site and updated Q&A back in April.
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..
The above statement has since been removed from her site.
What gives J.K?! 😦
