Remember that J. K. Rowling book that "would never be published?" It's being published. The Tales of Beedle the Bard, previously available in only seven copies, of which only one was sold (auctioned by Sotheby's last year for two million pounds, the proceeds going to charity), is coming out in a mass market edition in December. The owners of the six other copies have apparently agreed to the deal. Amazon will publish a more expensive edition, but only 100,000 copies of that will be available. Read more here in a BBC story.
