    I loved reading To Kill A Mockingbird as a kid. I have to say, no disrespect to Ms Lee, but I heard the news headline this morning "Beloved Author Dies" and I sat in a panic for a minute hoping it wasn't George RR Martin. I feel bad that I was relieved it was Harper.

    Well shows how much I paid attention, I never became aware it was actually published.

    The Washington Post had a story on it, and I'm not sure she wasn't tricked or this wasn't a scheme by a third party. According to what I read, Lee was already blind and deaf and living in a nursing home when the sequel was released. That seem to be a highly suspect time to come out with a book. And it's not as if she needed the money either - the Post said "To Kill a Mockingbird" was still pulling in $3 Million a year in sales when she died. In summary, I call hijinks!
