Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists

Book 2, Pottermore Presents

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


‘No Muggle Prime Minister has ever set foot in the Ministry of Magic, for reasons most succinctly summed up by ex-Minister Dugald McPhail (term of office 1858-1865): “their puir wee braines couldnae cope wi’ it.”’ – J.K. Rowling
Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing from the Pottermore archives: short reads originally featured on with some exclusive new additions. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters’ lives and surprises from the wizarding world.

These stories of power, politics and pesky poltergeists give you a glimpse into the darker side of the wizarding world, revealing the ruthless roots of Professor Umbridge, the lowdown on the Ministers for Magic and the history of the wizarding prison Azkaban. You will also delve deeper into Horace Slughorn’s early years as Potions master at Hogwarts - and his acquaintance with one Tom Marvolo Riddle.

Never read it at all in my entire life

I have never read this but I love the books from jkrowling you should read it

Fine Writing

This is fine writing by Mrs. Rowling. It is always entertaining and welcomed to learn a little more about the characters on Harry Potter series. This time we learn about, mostly, about a despised one (Umbridge), a distinguished one (Slughorn), one that went over his head almost literally (Quirell), and one character that, unless you have read the books instead of just relying on the movies, we knew very little about except for his mischievousness (Pieves the poltergeist). I must point out, though, that it is not her best but, any insight into the Wizarding World is always welcomed reading and any fan of Harry Potter, of which I'm one of them at the young age of 59, will enjoy.


These short stories are an excellent addition to the mainline Harry Potter books. I am in awe at the ease at which J.K. continues to expand her Wizarding World and I can't wait for more bits of info!
