Harry Potter and ...

Wednesday, June 30, 2004
The Guardian reports that Rowling has named book six in the Potter series:
Following a day of rumours concerning the title of the upcoming sixth book in JK Rowling's Harry Potter series, the author herself finally settled the question on her official website today. The next volume is to be called Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. The disclosure came after a fan posted a message on the 'Rumours' section of JK Rowling's site saying that the sixth book would be called Harry Potter and the Pillar of Storgé, (a reference to a Greek word, storg, meaning the affection of parents for their offspring). Rowling responded to the rumour by posting the actual title of the book on the front page of her site under the heading 'Title of Book Six: The Truth'.
An odd title which, apparently, refers neither to Harry or He Who Must Not Be Named. Not surprisingly either given the gap between four and five, no release date has been set as Rowling is still writing.
