First lets get this straight, Rowling is not making this "sequel" book. It is in fact a fan made book that is being sold at EldersCrossing.com
A sequel to the Harry Potter series has been made and has a website to promote it. The book, titled James Potter and the Hall of Elders' Crossing, is about the adventures of Harry Potter's eldest son. The book will be 360 pages and is being made by George Lippert, a 37 year old digital artist from St. Louis, Missouri. Mr. Lippert has stated that he wrote the book for his family who are fans of the series and were looking forward to more.
Christopher Little, Rowling's agent, has targeted any unauthorised works trading on the Harry Potter name. But experts specialising in copyright law say it may be less straightforward to prosecute Mr Lippert because young James Potter makes a fleeting appearance in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
The site is well made and is so realist that many people who have stumbled across it have theorised that J.K. Rowling is behind it, which was proven false by the face that Rowling is attempting to sue Lippert over copy right. Upon entering the site a brief video promoting the upcoming book followed by a countdown clock to the day of the book's release is displayed. More features can be accessed by using the following passwords:
1st Password: Genisolaris
2nd Password: Corsica
3rd Password: Poink
4th Password: Sylvven
The first password will give you access to an excerpt from "Technomancy, History, and Magical Polices." The second password displays a little video celebrating the end of Voldermort and admitting that this is not a site supported by J. K. Rowling. The third password gives access to an additional excerpt from "Technomancy, History, and Magical Polices." The forth password gives you access to a picture of the book's cover art.
From the excerpts and the artwork it is quite clear that Lippert has really dedicated himself to this project. The drawings are in the style of the Harry Potter books and the writing is very similar to the style of Rowling. I look forward to this book and will enjoy it as what it is... fan fiction.
I hope that Lippert wins against the might of Rowling's lawyers especially give that "experts specialising in copyright law say it may be less straightforward to prosecute Mr Lippert because young James Potter makes a fleeting appearance in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."
