J.K. Rowling's 'Pottermore': Not a book, but an Internet game

The publishing world has been waiting with bated breath for J.K. Rowling's announcement about her latest project, "Pottermore." It can exhale: "Pottermore" isn't more Potter, as in an eighth book in the wildly successful series. It's a...web-based scavenger hunt.

The publishing world has been waiting with bated breath for J.K. Rowling's announcement about  her latest project, "Pottermore." It can exhale: "Pottermore" isn't more Potter, as in an eighth book in the wildly successful series. According to the Guardian, It's a web-based scavenger hunt.

Well, that's one way to grieve the end of the book and movie series. Will you mourn? How?

When movie franchises die, are they inevitably resurrected as games?
