  Next Potter book 'still set for 2002'
Updated 20 May 2002, 20.02
JK Rowling
Rumours the latest Harry Potter book has been delayed till 2003 are wrong, according to the publisher's website.

Some reports over the last few days claimed Bloomsbury said the long awaited fifth book definitely wouldn't be out till 2003.

No definite date

But on Monday night the publishers dismissed those reports, again repeating the statement on their website saying:

"JK Rowling is happily writing Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and we anticipate that we will be publishing later this year."

There's no definite release date - JK Rowling will simply announce when she's finished writing.

And Bloomsbury thinks that it's still likely to be this year, in 2002.
