I’m not of the ”grassy knoll” ilk, but dead authors continue to write. I found it peculiar that Harper Lee discovered a lost manuscript at a time when she was receiving enormous publicity regarding her estate’s disposition upon her death. Now, 20 years after his death, a heretofore unknown Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) novel has been discovered. This sort of thing sits in an odd way in my mind because of the greed factor that seems inherent within almost all extended families.
Both of these books will be automatic million sellers. Since the Children’s genre leads the way in million-selling titles by a large margin, coming upon a fresh Dr. Seuss story seems beyond propitious. As to what’s occurred with Ludlum’s brand lately, I don’t believe it’s inconceivable that a great many dead authors will begin writing again.
That comment is meant to imply that every last drop of literary blood will continue to be squeezed out of the corpses of major dead writers. Yes, these stalwarts of the printed word are now the walking dead.
