Kathy Bates must have gotten to J.K. Rowling; it’s the only possible explanation.

Just a few weeks ago we were reporting the author had vowed Harry Potter and the Cursed Child would be her last word on the subject, and now here we are, telling you she’s written not one, but THREE new Harry Potter stories. Did a disappointed fan like Kathy’s character in Misery change her mind?
