Bloomsbury publishing director Liz Calder said the next and final Harry Potter book is "likely" to be released in 2007... she hopes.

At the British Council's Creative Futureopens in new window conference in India this week, Calder allegedly said as much in an interviewopens in new window with Indo-Asian News Service:

"One more 'Harry Potter' only but she (Rowling) said from the beginning that she would write seven. So she would not write another one after this. But Rowling would write other books for us," said Liz.

"The next 'Harry Potter' book is likely to come out in 2007. I hope so."

While Calder's comments are optimistic at best, she's one of only a handful of people other than Jo herself who could make such a weighty prediction.
