QUICK TAKES

Another mystery for Harry Potter

May 07, 2003|From Associated Press

The publisher of the "Harry Potter" books said Tuesday it feared copies of J.K. Rowling's latest -- as yet unpublished -- novel had been stolen, after a newspaper reported that two of the books were found in a field.

The Sun said two unbound copies of Rowling's latest offering, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," were discovered in eastern England close to Clays Ltd., a firm contracted to print hundreds of thousands of copies.

The 40-year-old man who found them handed over the books to the Sun, the newspaper said.

Publisher Bloomsbury PLC said it appeared the books had been stolen.
