RARA-AVIS: Are unpublished novels best left unpublished?

From: George Tuttle ( noirfiction@whoever.com)

Is it true that a good book will always find a publisher? If it is true, are unpublished novels best left unpublished, like for example Jim Thompson's The Rip-Off? I liked this posthumously-published novel. It had the quirkiness of The Golden Gizmo, but a tighter, stronger plot.

I am a believer that the literary marketplace is not that fair, but I am curious how others feel.
