David Riggs of Stanford University has a biography on Marlowe coming out
in the next year.  It looks at the matter of his death, and gives his
reasons for suspecting it is was set up by the government.  I recently
heard him discuss he reasons, and he has put together quite a lot of
evidence which does not prove it, but is suggestive.  My middle-aged
memory being what it is, I shalln't do his ideas the disservice of
trying to reproduce them here, but I think the book will be worth a
peek.

>See George Garrett's novel "Entered from the Sun" for an investigation
>of Marlowe's death.

>How do those assertions square with Charles Nicholls 'The Reckoning'?

See BBC History Magazine Vol 2 No 8. August 2001 and Mei Trow's latest,
Who Killed Kit Marlowe, (pub. Sutton.) for the latest developments.

Best wishes,
