If you wrote Lemony Snicket fanmail, you'd receive a reply in code

Lemony Snicket, author of A Series of Unfortunate Events, is certainly a clever writer and that cleverness has extended to his interaction with fans. One fan shares a letter she once received from the author, with a hidden message.

JS Carter posted these images on her Tumblr blog, explaining that when she was 10, she wrote to Lemony Snicket and received a form letter in response. It was seven years before she noticed that the missing letters in this missive spelled out a coded message.

That hidden message explains why the writer had to be so terse in his reply.

DISCUSSION

I've read only 3-4 of these books but I loved them. By favorite part was all the interventions by the author. It was funny and different.

Abd while the movie was dissapointing, Jim Carrey was perfect as Olaf.
