xx A possible Eighth Book!
« Thread started on: Jan 1st, 2008, 11:16am »

In a time magazine article Rowling admitted that she is thinking about writing another book for the series.

The downside: She will only consider writing an eighth book after ten years have passed. She also mentions in the article that she most likely won't focus on Harry as she feels his story has already been told.

Ten years sounds like forever but I am content to wait. If you have read Wicked you know that the sequel came out nearly ten years. People change and grow over and I hope that if and when this book comes I won't be disappointed.

Are you sure this isn't the encyclopedia she's been talking about?

I'd love an eighth book, but at the same time, I think it might be time to let a good thing lie.

:/

I wonder who she'd write about?

I heard this on Pottercast, from JK Rowling herself when she was on it. I think she mentioned that Albus Severus (you know, H and Gs kid) might be the focus. She said something like "I feel as if I've already told Harry's story, so it's definitely time to focus on something else." So yeah, I heard that in her very own words. The encyclopaedia comes first though, I think, and that's going to take FOREVER for her to do if she wants to do it well.

Yep, I just listened to it again and she does have thoughts about writing about "the next generation", as she calls it. Can't wait!

That would be really cool if there was a new book. I wonder what it could possibly be about though. I don't want her to write a book just because we want one. I would prefer no book than one that has no plot.

Why can't she write a book about the Marauders instead? cry Their story is so much more fascinating than Harry's. And I don't care that we already know the main plot. It would be awesome to read about it.

I agree. I like to hear the backstory better than the current story of Harry's.

I would also like to have a book based on the ancient wizards and witches. You know...The Founders, and the beginnings of the Minstry.

Oh, wouldn't that be cool?

The notion that she may write another book after 10 years is one which I suggested several months ago in another web site. It would fit in with the Epilogue of Book 7 which takes place in year 2016. I'm incline that the children of Harry and the others would be the central characters in any future books.
Harry has had more then enough adventures for several lives. I'm incline to think J.K. Rowlings would want to keep her options open in the future. It's good to be back with Realm. smiley

id love an eight book, but their nothing really left to right about when it comed to harry potters life. It would be kinda cool if she wrote another series about the same magical world but diffrent charecters and plots. Its kinda amazing how she created this magical world, and how complex it is. but anyways, id rather her go with her instincs and if she is feeelin some more magical books then she should go for it. if she's not up for it and doing it for the fans then id rather her not do it.

Well I think if she is going to write a new book it should be about Harry's Kids


My bad. Albus Severus is Harry's kid

I can't wait either. I'm sure it's going to be just as amazing as all the other Harry Potter books.

I think that it would be wonderful to have the focus shift to the ancient wizards and perhaps ones that were barely mentioned in the books, like Merlin, who was mentioned as being the greatest wizard of all time but not elaborated on at all. I think that it would almost be a waste of the marvelous universe that JK created not to explore it more deeply. But it would also be very romantic if harry were the only attention we were given by JK. really though more books would be so sweet!!

If we could have a prequel, that would be awesome. Especially if it focused on Lily Evans and James Potter's lives up until their deaths. Though, I doubt that would ever happen. I'll be happy with an encyclopedia.
