JK Rowling's Harry Potter Prequel Card

As I mentioned earlier, JK Rowling was one of the authors who contributed their work for Waterstone's Charity auction. Rowling wrote an 800 word prequel to Harry Potter, set in the days of the original Order of the Phoenix, with James and Sirius as the protagonists. Is it any good? Well, it depends... It's in typical JK style and quite fun. The bad sides? It's so short, and it makes you long for the whole back story. Now I'm hungry for a new book on the Marauders, and the Order and the First Wizarding War, and, unfortunately, I think that's never going to come...
By the way, the card with this story was sold for $50 000 to a Japanese businessman, which, I guess, is peanuts compared to the $1.95 million that Amazon.com paid for The Tales of Beedle the Bard in December 2007.
