After three long years, lonely Muggles can finally get another fix of Harry Potter and his Hogwarts wizard school cohorts. The latest fantasy tome by JK Rowling, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" (Scholastic, $17.99), with illustrations by Mary GrandPre, will go on sale at midnight on Friday, June 20.

Barnes & Noble [106 Court St. at State Street in Downtown Brooklyn, (718) 246-4996] will have a midnight Magic party, beginning at 11 pm, with entertainment courtesy of Justin the Magician.

The Park Slope Barnes & Noble [267 Seventh Ave. at Sixth Street, (718) 246-4996] will also sell copies at midnight and offer a Harry Potter Look-A-Like Contest, face painting, wizard hat making and giveaways beginning at 11 pm.

Both locations will have copies available for sale, but only customers who have pre-ordered the book are guaranteed a copy at midnight.
