One of the difficulties of creating something that's wildly successful is that it tends to define you, sometimes overshadowing all your other creative efforts as they inevitably end up being compared to that definitive work. J.K. Rowling knows all about that, and even though she swore that Harry Potter was done and buried in 2007, she's finally given in and announced an eighth book in the series.

Set for release at midnight on July 31, the book isn't so much a novel in the classic sense, but rather it's a "special rehearsal edition" script book of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – a stage play based on the series that's set to open in London on July 30, a day before the release of the aforementioned script book.

Some have cried out that this is just a shameless money grab on Rowling's part, while others suggest the British novelist is giving her international fanbase access to an otherwise inaccessible piece of work.
