It's been over seven years since the publication of the last Harry Potter book, and fans desire for more of The Boy Who Lived seems to only grow stronger with the passage of time.

Sure, J.K. Rowling brought Harry back in a brief (and somewhat depressing) short story in which we saw him as a downtrodden 34-year-old shuffling to his seat at a quidditch match, but that only whet readers' appetites for a return to form for the hero of Hogwarts.

After seven increasingly lengthy novels, fans said goodbye to Harry Potter with the "happily ever after..." conclusion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Now it looks as though author J.K. Rowling has decided to give us one last look at The Boy Who Lived.

It's confusing, but intriguing - and it's got J.K. Rowling behind it, so we have no doubt it will be imaginative and successful.

We're talking, of course, about Pottermore, the author's latest creation, first teased last week and now explained in more detail. In a new video, the woman behind Harry Potter says the website will be a "reading experience unlike any other."
