Surprising that she never drowned. Wikipedia states "When war was announced, shortly after her fifth birthday, she was evacuated to Wales, and thereafter moved several times, including periods in Coniston Water" :)

shes not dead you fags


So where are the denials? Her publishers, HarperCollins, have acknowledged her death and paid tribute to her.


Well, just because her family, her publishers, the Guardian, other press folk, her friends and Neil Gaiman claim she is did...is clearly not proof enough.

When her body is cremated, it could be someone else. Given it a week and she'll be spotted working in a chip shop in Croyden.



Actually, I seen her* walking through some town in Portugal with some funny-eyed little kid, a bloke with a moustache and a horse.




*Grammar police - I know it should be 'I saw her' but I'm from Wiltshire.

FAO guest doubters.

A brief search shows up 11 newspaper obits including The Granny link Falk linked to above, and mention of her passing from several close mates of hers.

Call me cynical, but I think it's safe to assume she has gone to see the Norwegian Blue.

Can't find any mention of her passing on any official news websites besides The Guardian, very peculiar

I was gonna say, 24 hours for an obit? Was this on some sort of Mussolini "we must see the body until we know he's dead" deal?
