(CBS NEWS) – It’s almost like magic — J.K. Rowling sends a few cryptic tweets and the entire Harry Potter fandom gets whipped into a riddle-guessing frenzy.
It all began when the author took to Twitter to explain why she’s been quieter as of late, telling followers she’s been busy with her Lumos charity and, oh, also some other projects like “tweaking a screenplay,” possibly the one for Potter spinoff film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”
Very busy at the moment working on a novel, tweaking a screenplay and being involved in @lumos campaigns. Back when I've finished something!— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) October 5, 2014
That certainly piqued fans’ interests — and it only grew from there when Rowling said she was tempted to post a riddle or anagram, and then did just that.
Cry, foe! Run amok! Fa awry! My wand won’t tolerate this nonsense.— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) October 6, 2014
Something to ponder while I'm away X— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) October 6, 2014
So far, a few fans have gotten close to solving the puzzle.
