But now: Vindication!
Rowling's Pottermore site has just announced that this summer will see the release of the print version of Harry Potter & the Cursed Child. That's right, the eighth book is finally coming. Of course, we should mention that this installment won't read exactly like the others—it's going to be the actual script for the West End play. It will publish immediately after the show's premiere, and encompass the version of the story that was performed during previews, whatever that may be. We can expect some stage direction along with our usual Potter antics, but we don't imagine that it will be any less magical.
And hey, it sure beats shelling out the dough for a trip to London to see the actual play.
