Towards the end of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" the character of Malvolio, after having a cruel but probably deserved trick played on him stalks out of the play exclaiming "I'll be revenged on the whole pack of you."

Has anyone attempted any literary sequel expanding on the idea of Malvolio getting his revenge?

Yes, I've definitely read a short story on this theme, although I don't remember the details very well. I think it was part of this anthology (http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?z=y&endeca=1&isbn=0786705965&itm=2).
