In news that will delight Potterheads, J.K. Rowling's website announced that four new stories in the form of eBooks will be available at the end of June.

Pottermore, or the 'The digital heart of the Wizarding World' as it's dubbed, is the go-to place for all-things Harry Potter and we suspect the news will have almost crashed the site, such is the ardent fanbase the franchise has.

The four short stories will be based on the witchcraft and wizardry taught in all of Hogwarts lessons. Along with Rowling's prose, the stories will be accompanied by illustrations from London-based artist Rohan Daniel Eason.

The press release reads: "Prepare to delve deeper into the rich history of magic (be it our own Muggle history, or the magical world created by J.K. Rowling) with this new series of eBook shorts, inspired by the British Library exhibition and its companion books, Harry Potter: A History of Magic."

The website adds: "In addition to exploring the origins of magic through history and folklore, the eBook shorts will also feature notes, manuscript pages and charming sketches as previously seen in Harry Potter: A History of Magic.

The eBooks' titles are called, Harry Potter: A Journey Through Charms and Defence Against the Dark ArtsHarry Potter: A Journey Through Potions and HerbologyHarry Potter: A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy, and Harry Potter: A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures.

Whilst no specific release dates were given for the following three, the website added, "The first pair, themed on Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts, and Potions and Herbology, respectively, will be published on 27 June, while the others will follow soon after. Stay tuned!"

Excited, Potterheads?
