Rejoice Harry Potter fans! As the story is apparently not over yet. J.K. Rowling has a huge holiday gift to her fans. The writer is about to put out 12 additional Harry Potter stories this month!

On Pottermore (J.K. Rowling’s official site), the author has announced that “Starting Friday, December 12, we’ll be releasing a festive surprise for you every day at 1pm GMT (8am EST).” That “festive surprise” will take the form of a short Potter story!

Not much is known at present about who or what the story or stories will be about, though rumors are going around that Draco Malfloy will be the star of one of them. Rowling has been giving fans new stories throughout the year, no telling whether these could be the end of that…or just the beginning.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
