You'd not be the first. Sequels to most of Austen's novels lurk on the
shelves of the local library. I avoid them.

S. N. Dyer's short story "Resolve and Resistance" is brill, though. Of
course, it's not a dead serious sequel-that-Austen-might-have-written;
it's about the French invasion of England, and the resistance movement
that forms at Pemberley.
