Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is the first major look into the Harry Potter World in over ten years, and the author behind that world – J.K. Rowling – is only adding to those flames in the second of four short pieces that reveal more of the history of magic on the American continent.

 

What marks the second piece out in particular for fans is its take on the Salem Witch Trials, revealing North America as much harsher for witches and wizards than Europe due to a variety of issues that I won’t spoil, and which you will have to read for yourself.
