Does anyone know what happened to Susan in book 7 after everyone dies?

According to a letter that Lewis wrote to a young fan, Susan goes on living in this world and, while she had abandoned her "faith" (was no longer a friend of Narnia) she still had a chance of redemption some time in the future. There has been a great deal of speculation on this subject in the Narnia forum.

It is an ongoing topic of some popularity, in a number of Narnia discussion forums.
There are some people who are quite unhappy that Lewis seems to have pre-judged Susan, others who point out that Susan is not condemned, merely that she has made a choice and her exclusion from the events of The Last Battle reflects that choice. It does not, of course, mean that she has no opportunity to change her mind. She reflects the situation of many people who have left their faith and chosen a different lifestyle: they all still have the right to change their minds and return. It is a warning to us that it is possible to reject faith and miss out on good things.

Perhaps a good idea for fanfic, if any of you guys are into that. Although I'm sure it's been done before... :undecided:
