J.K. Rowling recently posted on her official website she is preparing to write the final book in the HARRY POTTER series.

She states, "2006 will be the year when I write the final book in the HARRY POTTER series. I contemplate the task with mingled feelings of excitement and dread, because I can't wait to get started, to tell the final part of the story and, at last, to answer all the questions (will I ever answer all of the questions? Let's aim for most of the questions); and yet it will all be over at last and I can't quite imagine life without Harry.

Rowling goes on to note, "I have been fine-tuning the fine-tuned plan of seven during the past few weeks so that I can really set to work in January. Reading through the plan is like contemplating the map of an unknown country in which I will soon find myself. Sometimes, even at this stage, you can see trouble looming; nearly all of the six published books have had Chapters of Doom."

I'm... man... the movies have been so freaking great... I've read all the books and they are absolutely phenominal. I think my favorites are "The Prisoner of Azkaban" and "The Half-Blood Prince" Reading this is such a double edged sword because I want to see the film and be surprised, but at the same time I want to read the book and see how she ends things. With Stephen King's Dark Tower it's no contest, you read the books because there is no movie in sight. With this I'm so torn because there is a movie in sight after the book has been completed. aaaarrrrggghhh.. My ratings of the books of Harry Potter and: The Sorcerer's Stone 3*'s The Chamber of Secrets 3*'s The Prisoner of Azkaban 4*'s The Goblet of Fire 3 *'s The Order of the Phoenix 3 *'s The Half-Blood Prince 3 1/2 *'s ...anyway... if you haven't read them do so they are just wonderful.

Dragon261, of all the fantasy books to be developed... Shannara is on the top of my list to see an adaptation done, that and Dragonlance would just totally rock. LOTR set a very high bar. I only hope that some studio's out there are willing to take on the challenge of some of these great fantasy epics out there. Also, Exarkun1138... you do realize that you have at least until 2009 or 2010 until the last film is released until then most of us will enjoy Potter mania. Finally, I grew up with Star Wars mania, but I will not be held to that standard of film. It was great for the time, but the only one I can watch over and over again is Empire Strikes Back. The rest and followed by the degregation of the series in SW VI and the damn muppets soured my love of the series. Since then there have been many great series that I watch more than Star Wars. Just to name a few Lord of the Rings (My reigning king all series) Harry Potter (Quality acting and storytelling) Indiana Jones (How can you not?) Alien (Yes... I'm sick) Bond (1. Connery Era 2. Brosnan Era 3. Dalton/Lasenbury 4. Moore) I hope that NARNIA will be greenlighted and continue... sigh... Anyway Happy New Year

Outstanding... it sounds like you have an excellent collection of Sci-Fi. If you don't already have these are also excellent additions. Island in the Sky (another old classic) 2001 (Absolute Classic) Them (1950's classic ant horror film) Newer films already classics Dune (Both the Movie and Miniseries) Brazil (Just Brilliant) Gattica (Severly underatted)

oh man... Blade Runner... that was awesome. Abyss is not too bad either. I agree with Alaristhered on the HP writer comments.

exarkun1138 My favorite Sci-Fi of all time is The Andromeda Strain. That was just brilliant. A close runner up is 2001.

...just how LOTR ended... you wanted more... much much more. As for the potterverse... there are a multitude of possible ideas that could be done. I don't really embrace the idea of going backwards in a series unless time-travel is involved. But JKR could have something wicked up her sleeve... who knows, but for now, I'll just be happy to read the end of the current saga.
