Tolkien was working on a lord of the rings sequel but he found all of the story lines he could come up with really depressing so he dropped it.

Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman got buried by her because she hated it but when she died her heirs published it because money. It was awful and if you don’t realize the author didn’t like it either you’d like her a lot less after reading it.

I thought Go Set A Watchman was an earlier draft of To Kill A Mockingbird, published by her because her publishers pressured her into it? She died after Watchman came out, by the way.
