  New Potter book delayed till autumn
Updated 20 March 2002, 13.58
Harry Potter books
All the other Harry Potter books came out in the summer

After an already agonisingly long wait, it looks like the new Harry Potter book, The Order of the Phoenix, won't be out till autumn 2002.

That will be a huge disappointment after rumours the fifth instalment of the wizarding adventures might be out in the summer.

All the other Potter books have come out in the summer.

Bloomsbury, which publishes the books, says on its website the ideal release date now will be "early autumn 2002."

'The world is waiting'


JK: still writing...
And the company's boss, Nigel Newton, confirmed that it "will be released later this year".

He added: "The whole world wants to read this book" - which probably isn't far from the truth.

But there'll be no release date till JK Rowling has finished writing the book.

Bloomsbury will probably want to avoid clashing with the boy wizard's second film, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, which opens on 15 November.
