Should J.K Rowling write more Harry Potter novels?

I have seen this question appearing in forums, twitter and facebook for a while now “Should J.K Rowling write more Harry Potter novels?” I am a big fan of the movies, but slightly behind on the novels, as I read them with my nephews and they are only stay over every other weekend, so it’s a long process!

I would love to get Harry Potter’s fans ideas on this. I think for the most part the fans would say “YES! GIVE US MORE!”, but where would you take the story? What could it be about? When I was growing up there were some amazing books and movies that came out and over the years they have done sequel or spin off series and to be fair... they sucked!

Would more Harry Potter ruin this epic magical adventure? What stories would Harry Potter fans want to see J.K Rowling write? I am a massive Terry Pratchett fan and he has about forty Disc World novels that follow different characters on their own journeys. Would Harry Potter fans want to see that? Considering how big the cast of Harry Potter is it could mean tens of new novels.

So, I put it to you, the true hardcore Harry Potter fans, would you want to see more Harry Potter novels? What characters would you like to learn more about? What side stories from the original novels would like you better explained? What questions would you like to have answered from the novels?


  1. I think it would be very hard to do a prequel, having just written one myself. But she could take another of the characters that went to school with Harry, or write about Harry's children and have adventures with them and it would all be new and different. What would be good is her, the way she sees things and her imagination. How could a book she wrote not be great?

    Hey Jean, the next generation could be a good idea, but how would she make that story different to the current one. She is fairly young herself. Do you think she may give it ten or so years before attempting something like this, to create new ideas?
