Deepali Agarwal has a Master’s in literary linguistics, which means that every person she’s ever known has, at some point, asked her to ‘edit a thing’ for them-- ‘just see if it reads okay?’ She doesn’t mind, because she believes that the world can be fixed one oxford comma at a time. Deepali lives in Delhi, the capital of India, where cows are sacred, but authors and poets exist and write brilliant things. She works as an editor with OUP India’s School ELT division, where she moves apostrophes, looks up pictures of cats, and talks about children’s books for eight hours. The rest of her day is spent reading, thinking about Parks and Recreation, and wondering if there exist jobs for English majors that pay more than peanuts. Twitter: @DeepaliAgarwal_

While we’re still reeling under all the new information from Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, J.K. Rowling’s been busy writing more about the Potterverse. This fall, Pottermore will release a trio of ebooks, called Pottermore Presents, combining some of her old pieces on the website with some new writing.

The three books, set for a September 2016 release, are titled Short Stories from Hogwarts: Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists, Short Stories from Hogwarts: Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies, and Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide. The first two will talk about the Ministers of Magic, Azkaban, and some Hogwarts professors, giving us some much-needed insight into the lives of Minerva McGonagall, Horace Slughorn, and Remus Lupin, among others. The third will reveal more about the school’s hidden secrets, and promises more information about the Hogwarts ghosts!

It might be overkill, what with the Fantastic Beasts movie ready for a November release, but we do love that the focus seems to be on Hogwarts, something us Potter fans have been missing, since both The Deathly Hallows and The Cursed Child featured witches and wizards skipping on school to save the world.

The books, priced at $2.99 each, are available for pre-order on Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and iBooks, and while I pray that Rowling doesn’t drop the ball on these, I must say that those covers look fantastic.

Will we, or won’t we? Drop us a line in the comments telling us if these new Potter books pique your interest!
