J. K. Rowling Mentions the Harry Potter Encyclopedia on Her New Website
April 16, 2012, 07:02 PM
On J. K. Rowling's new website, Ms. Rowling confirms that the Harry Potter Encyclopedia is still in the works on the FAQ section of the site:
For a long time I have been promising an encyclopaedia of Harry’s world, and I have started work on this now – some of it forms the new content in Pottermore. It is likely to be a time-consuming job, but when finished I shall donate all royalties to charity.
Many thanks to Catherine and Max for owling!
I really don’t think she’d need to use the lexicon, she has masses of notes as she has said before. I’m sure that it would go against her principles to use that which was produced by someone who just got all the information from her books, then tried to make money out of it. I imagine that she will be looking at everything in greater detail than she was able to put into the books, that is the point of this encyclopaedia.
