UPDATED: Bloomsbury counting a ‘three-book box set’ tied with the Harry Potter books

In a new Reuters article about Bloomsbury Publishing’s profits, a small interesting mention about Harry Potter sneaked in and cause a whole lot of raucous.

Bloomsbury, the publisher of the “Harry Potter” series by author JK Rowling, also said it was counting on a new Rowling three-book box set tied into the Potter series, and a non-fiction account of spies in World War II to support sales in the coming year.

This is very interesting news that really just turned up out of the blue. Fans are already causing raucous on Twitter, with the excitement reaching a near-dangerous level. Mind you, they didn’t even say there books about Harry Potter – just related to it! I think until we get an official statement from either Bloomsbury or J.K. Rowling we must stick to the facts; Bloombury is counting on three new books. Though it gives a lot of hints, it does not confirm that J.K. Rowling will be writing/ wrote the books. Perhaps Bloomsbury wants them, but J.K. Rowling won’t write them. This statement could go a lot of ways…

Anyways, saying that J.K. Rowling wrote and will release three new Harry Potter books sounds much better. The only thing that we can think that this could be books like Quidditch Through the Ages, Tales of Beedle the Bard and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Hopefully we will be getting some more information as time progresses in the coming months and next year, if the books will be released then. Until then, we can only dream and hope!

UPDATE:

Sharecast is reporting that Bloomsbury is planning on rereleasing Tales of Beedle the BardQuidditch Through the Ages, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as the three-book box set. It is somewhat disappointing for some fans who thought the books would be newly written, but for others it is right on with their theory.

As soon as we hear any official information from Bloomsbury, we will be posting it.

  1. I’m seconding the theory on the three existing books being released as a box set. I fear the masses will find themselves disappointed again. If she was writing something new, we would know about it. Plus, Rowling just made a statement earlier that there were no firm plans even to publish the encyclopedia.

  2. Haven’t they already been released in a boxed set? Isn’t that a bit redundant? I would doubt they would do that except with the news of the canceled encyclopedia I am beginning to think that most (if not all) new information that does not involve an entirely new plot will be published through Pottermore for free.
