Gilderoy Lockhart isn’t his pseudonym — Gilderoy Lockhart is his name. And I think that that says something about his mother, who was very ambitious for her son, and encouraged him in the belief that he was a remarkable person.

J.K. Rowling herself opens up about one of the Harry Potter universe’s most flamboyant characters in these exclusive audio clips. Yes, clips — plural.

Rowling said in a statement that the play will “explore the previously untold story of Harry’s early years as an orphan and outcast.”

So… we’re talking Oliver!, only with repressed magic?

And the winner is…





Two beloved literary icons enter.

Only one will leave.

Our Best YA Novel finals begin… NOW.

This is the cruelest poll ever.

my loyalties…

I voted for Harry Potter. (It wasn’t even a particularly tough choice for me.)

HP is the most important story for a generation of readers and is one of the central reasons that my career even exists, so it’s a bit silly even to be in the ring with it here at the end.

Of course, the whole idea of a poll of Internet voters deciding the best YA novel of all time is also a little silly. But I am nonetheless very honored to have TFIOS around at the end, and thankful to all those who’ve read and shared it the past 22 months.

But yeah. Harry. Obviously.

If [my fans] stuck with me through Equus, they’re not gonna find a problem with this. And if they are, they’re a really weird type of bigot. If they’re like, ‘No, a horse is fine, but gay people I can’t stand.’

Wish list for J.K. Rowling’s ‘Fantastic Beasts’ movie:

1. Hot Young Dumbledore
2. Hot Young Dumbledore
3. Hot Young Dumbledore


J.K. Rowling is writing a new movie set in the wizarding world.


“Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for 17 years, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world,” said Rowling, in a statement.  “The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, 70 years before Harry’s gets underway.”
