JK Rowling gives new book green light

Best-selling author Harry Potter J K Rowling has given her imprimatur to a new book about her wizard boy by superfan Melissa Anelli, who runs a Potter fan web site. USA Today says Rowling, who earlier this year won a lawsuit to block another fan from publishing a Potter lexicon, has written the foreword to Anelli's tome, Harry, a History: The True Story of a Boy Wizard, His Fans, and Life Inside the Harry Potter Phenomenon.

Rowling writes that she's impressed by Anelli's fan site, Leaky Cauldron (, which gets more than a million hits a month.

Anelli says she thinks "there is a chance" Rowling may write an eighth Potter book. "If she returns to it, the book will be about Albus Severus Potter (son of Harry and Ginny Potter)," she says.
