Thanks Laura, for sending us this snippet from this week's new Entertainment Weekly about Book 5, or the lack thereof:

WAIT PROBLEM: For Potter fans, it's a torture worthy of the dungeons of Azkaban. Two full years have passed since the release of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and now there are rumblings the J.K. Rowling's next book might not be out until well into 2003. "With the first two books there was no pressure. By the third book there was a little pressure. And with the fourth book, she faced huge pressure. Right now, Jo is just taking the time to write the best book that she can," says David Heyman, a producer on the Warner Bros. Potter films who is in regular contact with Rowling. "My sense is that the book won't come out until next fall." Indeed, Scholastic Books chief exec Dick Robinson recently told Bloomberd News that the fifth installment, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, may not be published until the middle of next year. "We don't have it yet," says a spokesperson for te imprint. "But she's writing happily, and once we have it, it will take about five months to get it out." Sorry, Potter-ites: Your Dementors torture looks likely to continue for a while. - Matthew Flamm and Daniel Fierman
