A Harry Potter Prequel?

I've just recently found out about this from my blogger friend. It seems that JK Rowling has written a Harry Potter Prequel. It's just 800 words long and written on a A5 card to be auctioned off in the British capital. The proceeds of the sale will go to English PEN, the writers' association, and the British charity Dyslexia Action.

I actually got excited when I heard about this but when I saw that it's just an excerpt from a book that JK wouldn't write I got disappointed. She seems firm on the notion that she won't make another Harry Potter book. On one hand it's a good idea since it will preserve the magic of the Harry Potter series rather than milk it for everything it's worth.
