Potter prequel

Can't say I saw this coming .... J.K. Rowling wrote a prequel to the Boy who Will Kill Voldermort series for charity. And for the record, tis the charity bit I did not foresee, not the prequel bit.

I suppose claims by authors like Orson Scott Card is true; Rowling does want to be seen as a contributor to great literature and gain respect from her peers.

The BBC said the brief prequel, which will not be published, will go up for auction at Waterstone's Piccadilly store in London next month. Sotheby's will run the auction.
