The next Harry Potter: Back to the future or the past?

The Harry Potter books are done. Should J.K. Rowling write some new books that also involve the world of Harry Potter? Or, in the words of the Beatles, should she Let It Be?

And if she does write some new books about Harry's magical world, what should they be about? Would you like to read books about Albus Severus Potter and his adventures at Hogwarts? Or would you like to know more about the times of James, Sirius and Remus? How about going all the way back to the time of Dumbledore and Grindelwald? Or even further?

It's fun to read fan fiction ideas for these things, but would you like official books from J.K. about these stories? What would you like to see in the J.K. Rowlings's next "Harry Potter" book?

Unfortunately, it only be about 800 words, which is about two to three pages. But it's better than nothing!

From my part, I would love to read a book (written by JR of course) which include some of the most important parts of the whole history, those we almost know nothing or little, but not from Harry`s point of wiew. For example, some chapters dedicated to the marauders during the last days before Voldemort attack (perhaps from Sirius`s point of view), another chapters concerning Dumbledore`s point of view during Harry`s sixth year, and some others written through Snape`s eyes as Hogwart`s headmaster.
Correctly narrated, it would be awesome...

Well I personally don't care if it would be about James, Sirius, Lupin, and Peter, or Albus, James, or Lily Potter, or even Hugo or Rose Weasley. As long as she writes another one. But if she wrote about the future i think she should let a new family get some credit and the book should be about Rose Weasley, or Lily Luna Potter would be ok too.

i would like a book from voldemorts point of view, i mean, when he was growing up before he became truly 'evil'. i think people misundertsand the bad characters in books and movies, because people aren't born wicked.

You are so right. I think he was that way because he was alone and differant in the muggle world. He couldn't just have been that way because his mother was a Slytherin descendant and she wasn't Wicked. I think that he was just so excluded so he tried to defy gravity to be seen.

As many others have said - ANYTHING would be great. I like the ideas she's written for charity; Beedle the Bard and the 800 wd prequel treatment. Maybe a collection of short stories/poems would be best. That way the Dumbledore/ Maurauders/ sequel eras could be covered. Or maybe a collection that revolves around a theme - for example a day at Diagon Alley which could involve many characters/locations or maybe the Many Mischiefs of Fred and George, or again kids bedtime stories....
The possibilities are nearly endless.
I think the fact that JKR said 99% no more Potter until she's had a long break, but has in fact written 2 spin-off (despite being small and rare) show she hasn't quite eliminated the possibility. Maybe when she's finished the encyclopedia...

I think that J.k should write a new series of books about james, sirus, and lupins life at hogwarts, maybe frm james point of view!wouold be quite cool i think!

if theyre going to make another series they should makie it about Dumbeldores life. There were so many mysteries left unsolved. We never got straight answers on so many things. For example... what exactly did the boys do to his sister? More detail about his sisters . More about Aberforth and exactly what he did, and how much power Aberforth had.

I think it would be really interesting to hear about how Hogwarts was started. We have already heard from the Grey Lady a little about her mother (Rowena Ravelclaw) and the diadem, which sounded quite exciting!

Also I think it would be great to find out the full story behind the Gryffindor-Slytherin feud plus all the founders objects (sword, locket, diadem, cup).

I think that J.K Rowling should write another book, maybe noting to do with Harry Potter, when she wrote Harry Potter, she created a new world, a world pople would find themselves dissapering into juust by reading the books, and if she were to do that agian, Rowling would give us a new world to discover and get lost in.J.K Rowling has an amazing way of discribing a world that sounded so it good it could be true, she described everything into the last detail, and if she were to do that again, with completly new characters and new places, then she would do something no other writer has done before!

I seriously think she should go way back in the past...from where it all started, witches and wizards had gone into hiding, how the ministry was made,How hogwarts was made what was the story behind the founders and their objects. the rivalry between Salazar slytherin and the other founders-Dumbledore's past,The story of the ghosts at hogwarts,How did nearly headless nick get nearly headless.Grindelwald's past. The fight between Dumbledore and grindelwald. Voldemort's past and his days at hogwarts, his job at borgin and burkes. his exile in albania. And then the times of James,Sirius,lupin. And don't forget snape and lily. How voldemort ed so many people. And finally how lily protection saved harry.
It really be fun to get to know all this.

But if she starts a whole thing on Albus Severus,James, Lily,Rose,Hugo. it be just toooooo far-fetched.

Or she could carry on with Harry,Ron,Hermione. Even they can fight.

But i hope she doesn't anyone.....

i think that joanne should not write anymore books, becuase to me they would be very fun to read, but at the same time it just wouldnt have the same magic as the original seven.
