Read about a 34 year old Harry Potter...If that is your thing.

This story makes me wonder what type of hi-jinx Holden Caufield might have gotten up to if Salinger decided to toss off a short story every once in a while.
Author J.K. Rowling has written a new story based off the "Harry Potter" characters, which takes places following the events in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."

The story is told from the perspective of The Daily Prophet gossip columnist Rita Skeeter and centers on Harry, now 34, who attends a Quidditch World Cup tournament with his sons James and Albus and wife Ginny Weasley, who is a reporter. Hermione, an employee at the Ministry of Magic, and Ron, a co-manager at Weasley's Wizards Wheezes, are also featured, along with Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood.

Harry is decribed with a "couple of threads of silver" in his hair, while Ron's red mane is "thinning."

Fans who want to read the 1,500-word story must subscribe to, which has been flooded with users since the annoucement.   Rowling's final book in the Harry Potter series was released in 2007, and the last film opened in theaters in 2011.
