New Harry Potter is Finished
- London bookshops eye death-fuelled sales HARRY POTTER and the Half-Blood Prince is finished, said its author JK Rowling today.

Prince is finished, said its author JK Rowling today. Among the hints dropped by Rowling as to what happens in the book is the revelation that one of its main characters is to be killed off, a publicity tactic that proved highly effective in the run-up to publication of the last book, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

When Order of the Phoenix was published, bookshops in London and around the world saw unprecedented demand and huge queues full of fans lining up over night hoping to be among the first to know the identity of the deceased.

It is highly likely such scenes will be repeated next year when Half Blood Prince hits the shops. Rowling said she will reveal the publishing date very soon.
