J.K. Rowling Hints at New Harry Potter Book on Twitter?

by at .

It's been over seven years since the publication of the last Harry Potter book, and fans desire for more of The Boy Who Lived seems to only grow stronger with the passage of time.

Sure, J.K. Rowling brought Harry back in a brief (and somewhat depressing) short story in which we saw him as a downtrodden 34-year-old shuffling to his seat at a quidditch match, but that only whet readers' appetites for a return to form for the hero of Hogwarts.

Now it looks as though legions of Potter-philes may finally get what they've been longing for, as Rowling posted a fan message that couldn't be more exciting if it was delivered via owl.

Rowling mentioned the Potter spinoff film - Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - indicating that she's hard at work on the screenplay. 

A fan replied with, "Every time @jk_rowling tweets I stop what ever I'm doing and overanalyze it for an hour," which prompted Rowling to reply with a teaser that she may soon regret:

"See, now I'm tempted to post a riddle or an anagram," Rowling tweeted. "Cry, foe! Run amok! Fa, awry! My wand won't tolerate this nonsense!"

She later added, "Something to ponder while I'm away."

So yeah, needless to say, Potter obsessives the world over are scrambling to make sense of J.K.'s clue, but given her adeptness with subtle clues, in may prove a bit more difficult than the Jumble in your daily paper.

This us pretty much the most exciting thing since the Potter cast reunion photo, so we better not unscramble this and get an ad for Ovaltine.
