Attention, J.K. Rowling: Your fansNews
Attention, J.K. Rowling: Your fans are waiting. And waiting. After quickly turning out four Harry Potter books -- one per year since July 2000 -- the usually prolific author is months late in wrapping up her fifth entry into the sensational series, reports The New York Times. How late? It apparently will not be ready for its scheduled July 2002 publication. The only word about the book, to be called "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," says The Times, is that its American publisher, Scholastic, has told its stockholders (as well as hungry young readers) that it expects to publish it some time before June 2003.

Harry Potter star Rupert Grint has revealed how both he and co-star Daniel Radcliffe are growing up - their voices have broken. He admitted: "My voice is a lot lower than it was in the last film." Rupert, 13, who plays Ron Weasley in the film series, says that his own voice started changing at the start of shooting the latest movie, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
