Jo writing a crime fiction? Nope.

August 22, 2007

Apparently, the rumours Ian Rankin started on spotting J.K.Rowling writing a crime novel is fake.

Article from Guardian UK:

Speculation that the Edinburgh book festival may have resolved one of the burning questions of modern publishing – what JK Rowling will write next – have been dashed this afternoon, when the Scottish crime writer Ian Rankin diagnosed a case of festival fever.
A report that his wife, Miranda, had seen JK Rowling “scribbling away” in an Edinburgh café, supposedly hard at work on a detective novel set in the Scottish capital, was dismissed as a classic silly season story when the Guardian contacted him by telephone earlier today.

“This is a joke that got out of hand,” said Rankin, describing how the remark was made on stage during the course of a festival event.
“There were 600 people in the audience, and only one person didn’t laugh,” he added.

Rankin, who announced the title of his latest Inspector Rebus mystery at the festival last week, offered no further clues as to what the creator of Harry Potter might get up to next, despite living in the same Merchiston area of Edinburgh as JK Rowling.

Speculation that the children’s author may turn her hand to another fantasy project, a piece of literary fiction or even a biography remains, for the moment, just that. Emma Schlesinger, speaking for Rowling’s literary agent, Christopher Little, was keen to stress that the crime novel rumours were “unfounded”.

“JK Rowling is taking a well-earned break following the English language publication of Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows and there are no firm plans as yet as to what her next book may be,” she said.

Rowling has already ruled out a Harry Potter prequel, though the door to an eighth Harry Potter book – perhaps a charity encyclopedia of the Hogwarts world – remains ajar. The publishing world will have to wait a little longer.

But we still do want that encyclopedia.
