It was a bit of a surprise to learn that J.K. Rowling’s The Tales of Beadle the Bard is actually getting a mass-market printing. This book of short stories, set in the Harry Potter universe with commentary by Dumbledore, was originally released only in a tiny run of seven hand-made copies, sold at auction for charity.

Now the charity is doing a standard hardcover run of the book…and a $100 collector’s edition designed to mimic the original hand-written run. While considerably cheaper than the £1,950,000 Amazon spent to get their copy of the original run, it’s a little more than I’d like to spend. (I mean, I didn’t even spring for the $150 for the special edition of Comic Book Tattoo.) I think I’ll stick with the standard edition.

One thought on “Following Up on Harry Potter

  1. Commentary by Albus, huh? So, is this going to be anything like Mystery Science Theater 3000 or even Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them?
