A new enhanced e-book edition, featuring an extended transcript from Melissa Anelli's exclusive interview with J. K. Rowling and a new, updated chapter! Melissa Anelli wears a ring that was a gift to her from J.K. Rowling, given as a measure of appreciation for the work she does on The Leaky Cauldron, where her job entails being a fan, reporter, guardian, and spokesperson for the Harry Potter series. For ten years, millions of fans have lived inside literary history, the only fans to know what it was like when Harry Potter was unfinished. When anticipation for a book was just as likely to cause a charity drive as a pistol shootout. When millions of rabid fans looked to friends, families, neighbors, forums, discussion groups, fan fiction and podcasts to get their fix between novels. When the death of a character was a hotter bet than who'd win the World Series. When one series of books had the power to change the way books are read. This has been a time when a book was more popular than movies, television, and video games. The series has spawned a generation of critical thinkers and new readers. The New York Times changed the way it reported book sales just to avoid a continual overpowering of its bestseller list. These events must be given their proper context, and this moment must be preserved. The series will remain important to literature and pop culture, but the experience will change. Harry's fate will be as commonly known as the identity of Luke Skywalker's father, and readers who never had to wait for a Harry Potter book will have no idea what transpired when the series had hundreds of millions of people waiting desperately for the next volume. We are the first wave of Harry Potter fans, the ones that are living in the time that shapes how Harry Potter will be remembered for all time. But when this era is over, fans will need some way to remember this strange, wonderful, dizzying experience. Future fans, too, will want to know what they missed. Harry Potter will exist as a seven-book series, but without the indivisible story of the cultural, literary and emotional impact the series has made, the story is incomplete. How can a fan understand Harry Potter without hearing about the midnight book parties, the scams, the theories, the burglaries, the bets, the bannings, and most importantly, the worldwide camaraderie spurred on by mutual love of a boy wizard? How can they know how Harry Potter changed and touched the lives of so many without hearing it first hand? Harry, A History tells this story. It tells the personal story of Melissa Anelli's journey through the very heart of Harry Potter fandom. And wraps this phenomenon up into one narrative, factual volume – one book that tells what happened when Harry Potter met the world.

Hell on earth is only one click of a mouse away… The Dark Net is real. An anonymous and often criminal arena that exists in the secret far reaches of the Web, some use it to manage Bitcoins, pirate movies and music, or traffic in drugs and stolen goods. And now an ancient darkness is gathering there as well. This force is threatening to spread virally into the real world unless it can be stopped by members of a ragtag crew: Twelve-year-old Hannah -- who has been fitted with the Mirage, a high-tech visual prosthetic to combat her blindness-- wonders why she sees shadows surrounding some people. Lela, a technophobic journalist, has stumbled upon a story nobody wants her to uncover. Mike Juniper, a one-time child evangelist who suffers from personal and literal demons, has an arsenal of weapons stored in the basement of the homeless shelter he runs. And Derek, a hacker with a cause, believes himself a soldier of the Internet, part of a cyber army akin to Anonymous. They have no idea what the Dark Net really contains. Set in present-day Portland, The Dark Net is a cracked-mirror version of the digital nightmare we already live in, a timely and wildly imaginative techno-thriller about the evil that lurks in real and virtual spaces, and the power of a united few to fight back

‘Minerva was the Roman goddess of warriors and wisdom. William McGonagall is celebrated as the worst poet in British history. There was something irresistible to me about his name, and the idea that such a brilliant woman might be a distant relative of the buffoonish McGonagall.’ – J.K.

These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K.

These stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K.

По всем статьям, Гарри Поттер был весьма необычным ребёнком. Взять хотя бы то, что он ненавидел летние каникулы. Или то, что он искренне стремился выполнить каникулярные домашние задания, но был вынужден заниматься этим тайно, под покровом ночи. А ещё он был колдун. Уже почти наступила полночь, а Гарри, как тентом укрывшись с головой одеялом и держа в руке карманный фонарик, лежал на животе на кровати. Перед ним, подпёртая подушкой, стояла раскрытая книга в кожаной обложке («История магии» Батильды Жукпук). Гарри водил кончиком орлиного пера над страницей и, насупив брови, пытался выискать в книге что-нибудь, что помогло бы закончить сочинение на тему «Бессмысленность сожжения ведьм в четырнадцатом столетии — обсуждение». Перо зависло над подходящим параграфом. Гарри поправил на носу круглые очки, поднёс фонарик поближе к книге и прочитал: Не владеющие магией люди (более известные как муглы) в средние века особенно сильно боялись колдовства, однако не обладали даром распознавать оное. В тех редких случаях, когда им удавалось поймать настоящих ведьм или колдунов, сожжение не приносило ожидаемого результата. Колдун или ведьма в этом случае прибегали к базовому Пламезамораживающему Заклятию, а затем притворно вопили от боли, в действительности испытывая лишь легкую щекотку. Например, Везучка Венделин так любила жариться на костре, что позволяла отловить себя не менее сорока семи раз, разумеется, под разными обличьями. Гарри зажал перо зубами и полез под подушку за чернильницей и свитком пергамента. Медленно и очень осторожно он отвинтил крышечку, обмакнул перо в чернильницу и начал писать, постоянно останавливаясь и прислушиваясь — если бы кто-то из Дурслеев по пути в ванную услышал скрип пера, то Гарри, скорее всего, заперли бы в шкафу под лестницей до самого конца каникул. Из-за семейства Дурслеев, проживавшего в доме № 4 по Бирючиновой аллее, Гарри и ненавидел летние каникулы. Дядя Вернон, тётя Петуния и их сын Дудли были единственной оставшейся у Гарри родней. Они были муглы, и им было свойственно в высшей степени средневековое отношение к колдовству. О погибших родителях Гарри — а они как раз были колдун и ведьма — в стенах дома на Бирючиновой аллее упоминать не полагалось. Многие годы тётя Петуния и дядя Вернон пребывали в убеждении: если держать Гарри в как можно более забитом состоянии, то из него удастся выбить волшебные способности. К их великому возмущению, ничего не вышло. Теперь им приходилось жить в постоянном страхе: вдруг кто-нибудь узнает, что племянник вот уже два года учится в «Хогварце», школе колдовства и ведьминских искусств. Всё, что они могли предпринять в качестве превентивной меры, так это с самого начала каникул запереть в шкафу книги заклинаний, волшебную палочку, котёл и метлу и запретить мальчику разговаривать с соседями. Недоступность учебников была для Гарри настоящим бедствием, потому что в «Хогварце» много задавали на каникулы. Одна из работ, особенно сложная, про уменьшительные отвары, предназначалась для самого нелюбимого учителя, профессора Злея, а тот был бы в восторге, найдись у него повод наложить на Гарри суровое взыскание на месяц-другой. У Гарри не было выбора — пришлось воспользоваться первым же удобным случаем. В самом начале каникул, пока дядя Вернон, тётя Петуния и Дудли
