In the wake of JK Rowling's Pottermore announcement, Skoob Entertainment News supremo, Buffty Ginslinger has categorically stated that an 8th Harry Potter book is inevitable.
Speaking from a wine bar close to London's famous Leicester Square, where he occasionally enjoys a wee dram with a Scottish pimp named Alex, Ginslinger explained that the pressure on JK Rowling to produce another Potter novel is simply immense.
Despite the author's continued assertions that the Harry Potter series is complete, and that she has no intentions of adding anything further to the ouvre, Ginslinger remains absolutely convinced that Rowling will be coaxed out of 'retirement' to continue the Potter saga.
"Oh, she'll do it," Ginslinger asserted. "You can quote me on that. I'm not quite sure when, but there's going to be so much money bandied about - not to mention the overwhelming demand - that JK will feel a certain obligation. The Potter books have afforded the lady a fabulous lifestyle, and she's obviously head over heels in love with her own creation, that a comeback is a given. A dead cert. I know I wouldn't hesitate if I was her, although our approaches would probably be entirely different. She'll probably write about wizards, and sorcery, whereas I would probably spice it up with a bit of professional wrestling and a bevy of glamour models thrown into the mix. Probably with some giant ants, dinosaurs, an axe murderer in some sort of bizarre rubber mask, and some alien space vampires in bikinis."
More as we get it.
