“The Life and Lies of Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore” Exclusive Cover Reveal!

We at MuggleNet are excited to be able to reveal the cover for The Life and Lies of Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, a new book by Irvin Khaytman. Khaytman, perhaps better known on MuggleNet as hpboy13, wrote the essay that would form the first chapter of the book back in 2013.

The Life and Lies of Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore will be published by Story Spring Publishing on July 31, a nod to Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling’s shared birthday. Its cover art was created by Sheila Simmons. Check it out below!

 

 

Here is a summary of the book itself.

Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, Headmaster of Hogwarts, is one of the most recognizable and mysterious figures in the Harry Potter series. As an unscrupulous beetle-like journalist once said, he’s ‘a biographer’s dream.’ Is he omniscient or limited? Is he benevolent or malevolent? What really drove him in the last years of an extraordinary life?

This book will dive between the lines of the Harry Potter books to create a portrait of the controversial Headmaster. Through analyzing the careful clues buried in the Harry Potter text, we deduce what Dumbledore knew, what he planned, and why he made the choices he did. We find Dumbledore’s hand in every seeming coincidence, and we consider the impossible decisions he had to make. This book casts events in the Harry Potter series in a new light, resolving unanswered fan questions that linger to this day.

The Life and Lies of Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore will sell for $15.99, and you can preorder your own copy as a physical book or as an e-book. A launch event for the book will be held on July 31 in New York City. (You can also confirm your attendance on Meetup.)
