Imagine that every year or two, J.K. Rowling revisited her Harry Potter novels to change scenes, update dialogue, cut material, or add new interactions. Maybe the Deathly Hollows that you first read upon its release is going to be different from the version coming out in 2013. Is this concept realistic? Would authors ever go back and edit works that have already been published? Would publishers allow it?
