J.K. Rowling's first post-Harry Potter novel

Postby FormerBondFan » Mon Feb 27, 2012 3:39 pm

As what we read in the news, Ms. Rowling plans to have her post-Harry Potter novel published sometime this year. Unlike Potter, it will be an adult novel. But will the story takes place in Harry's universe.....well.....at least in the muggle world?

There haven't been many details released so far, but she has sait that it will be "very different from Harry Potter", so I'm assuming it doesn't take place in the Potterverse, and isn't a fantasy novel. Crime novelist Ian Rankin, a friend of Rowling's, has been hinting for some time that she might write a detective novel, but it isn't clear whether he is joking/creating a deliberate red herring.
Balls, Q?

It would nice if it does. The world where her adult novel takes place and the World of Wizardry coexist, and the majority of muggles know nothing of Harry's world. Of course, she did said it's not fantasy.

Chief of Staff, 007's gone round the bend. Says someone's been trying to feed him a poisoned banana. Fellow's lost his nerve. Been in the hospital too long. Better call him home.

It was good-lots of characters to keep track of but I didn't have a problem with that. It's much more..how do you say..slice of life than Harry Potter though.
