A follow up tonight on that mysterious website we told you about earlier this week, that had rumors flying and fans buzzing about a possible sequel to the Harry Potter series called “James Potter and the Hall of Elders’ Crossing.” While this was officially debunked as a hoax and not an official book or film, The Scotsman reports this is a work of fan fiction by a man named “George Lippert, 37, a digital artist from St Louis, Missouri, who wrote it for his wife and sons, who are avid Harry Potter fans.” Stating that this is a 360 page story, the newspaper reports:

“Mr Lippert intends to release a chapter a day throughout December, free of charge, on his website.The computer-generated movie trailer for the book features Harry-Potter style theme music, thunder and lightning sound effects and icons revealing hidden passwords and clues leading to taster extracts from the “new” book.One chapter discusses the attempt to tighten up broomstick flying legislation for underage wizards and witches after some high spirited alcohol-induced behaviour celebrating a Scottish sporting victory in the heart of London.

Last week Mr Lippert said: “I am a little worried that people will be angry when they find out it’s not Rowling.”But I hope Harry Potter fans will enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.”

The paper says that reps for J.K.Rowling are “threatening legal action,” however this is no quote or any sort of confirmation of this supposed legal action given in the news report, and we will update with more on this when we can.
