Who also made it quite clear that as far as she was concerned there was, is and never will be any more to the story. I believe the actions of her estate in permitting the sequel were in direct contradiction to her wishes and she obstinately refused to satisfy any of her desperate readers with hints as to where the story would have gone when asked. Her view, I believe was best stated as "Frankly my dear I don't give a damn".

So, the rest of us may speculate and writhe with unsatisfied curiousity while she smirks one last "Fiddle dee dee" at us.
