J.K. Rowling writes short Potter story

– Harry Potter is back – mysterious, married and going gray.

J.K. Rowling has given fans a glimpse of the grown-up boy wizard in a new story posted Tuesday on her Pottermore website.

It’s the first update since “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” was published in 2007, but Rowling spokesman Mark Hutchinson said there are no plans for a new Potter novel.

The 1,500-word story describes Harry, about to turn 34, attending the final of the Quidditch World Cup with his family and old friends Ron and Hermione.

Harry now has “threads of silver” in his hair and a mysterious cut on his cheekbone, related to his “top secret” work as an evil-battling Auror.

The story is written in the style of a gossip column by reporter Rita Skeeter.

The story discloses that Ron now runs the family joke shop, while Hermione is a – literally – high-flying civil servant, Deputy Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.
