I prefer unstarted novels. You probably never heard of most of them.

Probably doesn't fit this guy's criteria though. It's certainly not what DFW would've ended up with, but it's not so much "unfinished" as "finished by someone else."

/same for the Silmarillion

Some writer completed an unfinished Tarzan novel that Edgar Rice Burroughs started.  However, the writer admitted up front that the story was only just starting, Tarzan having left his home to go exploring, before Burroughs stopped (or died, I dunno).  So the story could really go anywhere from that point.  I'm still glad for it, but it's not like it was just the ending was missing.
