The discovery of Harper Lee’s heretofore unknown book, Go Set a Watchman, thrilled an audience starved for Lee’s magical ability to embrace the heart and soul of her readers.  And then, What Pet Should I Get? was published, giving us yet another Dr. Seuss book, with the promise of at least two more of his unpublished manuscripts set to find their place on Amazon and in bookstores in the not-too-distant future. And J.R.R. Tolkien’s previously unpublished work, The Story of Kullervo, will be out next April.

The discovery and publication of these previously unknown and unpublished works have shaken the publishing world.

I suspect we’ll have several new Shakespeare plays coming out shortly.

    Agreed, though when we finally got Lee’s text, critics agreed it was nothing less than a draft of the masterpiece. Seuss’ book is recognizable of Seuss style, yes … but again, not as good as his others.

    Tolkien is a surprise to me. Did you know that Hemingway’s infamous chest of manuscripts — lost by his girlfriend in a train — has never been recovered? Now that would be a great find.

    But I wonder if their loss was our gain?

I wish you would tell me what you think about this post...
