Harry Potter Book 7…

J K Rowling has announced that the seventh and final Harry Potter novel is to be called Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which sounds nicely ominous. But that’s pretty much all she’s telling us beyond a hint that two characters will die. Lots of speculation going on about that, but I’m happy to wait and see.

Not even the vaguest hint of a clue of a suggestion of a publication date, which, given the quite long production time to get five thousand squillion copies into the shops, and the fact that the book doesn’t appear to be finished yet, suggests to me that we shouldn’t expect it before 2008.
