NEW YORK (AP) - The long-anticipated final book in the acclaimed Harry Potter series comes out Saturday.

Fans around the world are anxiously awaiting word on whether the boy-wizard hero lives or dies.

Author J.K. Rowling has said that two major characters will be going to that great library in the sky.

And she's been begging readers who grab the first copies not to spoil it for others.

Some people already have, or maybe they have. U.S. publisher, Scholastic Incorporated, has been scrambling to kill dozens of purported versions that have been popping up on the Internet.

One contains digital images of what are claimed to be all 36 chapters and an epilogue, photographed as the book lay open on a carpet.

Scholastic says the versions all look convincing but notes that they are all different. The company, of course, isn't saying which, if any of them, might have it right.
