Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has launched a mysterious website called Pottermore to treat her fans with more wizardry.
The project was unveiled when Rowling asked fans to enter 10 sets of coordinates into a site called secretstreetview.com.
Later on, a letter could be found at each location, spelling out the Pottermore name.
The website revealed Rowlings signature and the message: Coming soon...
Her lawyer, Neil Blair, refused to reveal what the website would contain.
This is not a new Harry Potter book, the Telegraph quoted him as saying.
According to rumours, the interactive site will be a meeting place for fans offering games, a Harry Potter encyclopaedia, readings by Stephen Fry and competitions.
The fans will also be able to buy books from this site.
Potter fan site The Leaky Cauldron was granted a sneak preview of the content and they described it as one of the most amazing, engaging and breathtaking additions to this fandom imaginable.
