It's also true, as some snide reviews have noted, that the book was not backed by a big-money corporate publisher and so does not have all the top-of-the-line production values (like glossy full-color plate pictures) and advertising campaign that comes with many "mainstream" publications. And yet for all that, it has out-competed its orthodox Stratfordian "evil twin" (the Edmondson-Wells "Shakespeare Beyond Doubt" without the question mark, also published in 2013; see my 1-star review; and yes, I have not only read but purchased BOTH books, and often consult both from my library shelf).
Several of the essays are each alone worth the purchase price: e.g., co-editor Waugh's on the Bard's Italian connections; Jimenez's on "10 Eyewitnesses Who Saw Nothing" (people we know knew Shakspere of Stratford personally, and left significant writings, and yet somehow avoided leaving any hint they thought he was any kind of writer at all, far less England's greatest poet and playwright, the "Soul of the Age!" etc); Bonner Miller Cutting's on the Stratford man's very oddly mundane will that orthodox Stratfordians love to avoid even talking about; Rollett's chapter on the "Impossible Doublet" in the First Folio Droeshout engraving, etc, etc.
Congratulations to co-editors John Shahan and Alexander Waugh for a job well done. Almost five years later, this volume has stood the test of time. I still find myself discovering valuable information in it. I really need to read it all the way through again, from beginning to end.
I defy any of the orthodox scoffers who have reviewed it here on Amazon.com to actually read it with an open mind, and not admit there is SOMETHING at least FISHY about the traditional tale we have all been told, that most orthodox English teachers and professors simply accept based on received tradition and conventional wisdom, without ever seriously looking into the issue. Look into it! You might even have some fun!
