Books Featured Sci-Fi & Fantasy Top story


Get ready to add yet another Potter book to your bookshelf: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Illustrated Edition went on sale Tuesday.

The art for this fully-illustrated edition of the second Potter book was done by Jim Kay, the same artist behind last year’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Illustrated Edition(And, according to Pottermore, the same artist already working on the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Illustrated Edition, which is set for an October 2017 release.)

In case you haven’t gotten your hands on a copy yet, Pottermore and publisher Bloomsbury released a video of Kay discussing his thoughts on drawing Diagon Alley, which should whet your appetite somewhat:

This has already been a big year for new Potter releases, and it’s not over yet. Publisher’s Weekly reports the special rehearsal edition script of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts I and II sold more than 2 million copies in North America its first two days on sale. In early September, a collection of short stories from Hogwarts released as three e-Books made the top five of the iBooks U.S. Bestseller List.

Plus, the script for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be released Nov. 18, the same day as the movie. And we’re still waiting to find out when the definitive collector’s edition of the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child script will be available.

Here and there ...
