J.K. Rowling has breathed new life into the Harry Potter series with a new short story.
The 1,500-word story, published on the writer’s Pottermore website, describes the now 34-year-old Harry as having ‘threads of silver’ in his black hair.
Ron Weasley is revealed to be co-manager of Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes with his brother George after working for two years at the Ministry of Magic.
His wife Hermione, Harry’s wife Ginny, and their children all feature in the story. The supremely capable Hermione is now Deputy Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.
Rowling also gives fans a hint of Harry’s new life by describing a mysterious cut over his cheekbone, perhaps related to his membership of a top-secret group of wizards called the Aurors.
It is written in the form of an article by Rita Skeeter, a gossip columnist for the Daily Prophet newspaper featured in the books.
