>two mystery novels by Philip Gooden,
>Death of Kings (2001) and Sleep of Death (2000), both set in
>Elizabethan London.

I just read Peter Tonkin's "The Point of Death", which has Will as a
character involved in the same spy and counter-spy business as the
recently killed Kit Marlowe. Much detail re: London underworld and the
Mysteries of poison and fencing.  Not recommended, but not bad.
Generous thanks to Dave Kathman in the Notes. Pub. Severn House, 2001.

Subject:        Favor re: Ken Russell's The Devils

A documentary on Ken Russell's 1971 film, The Devils, containing a
controversial scene cut from the film and long thought to have been
lost, will be shown on BBC Channel 4 on November 24.  See
http://media.guardian.co.uk/broadcast/story/0,7493,843371,00.html

Is there a member of this list in the UK with a TV and VCR who would
tape the documentary for me and send me the tape?  I'll pay for the tape
and mailing, of course. (My VCR plays PAL tapes, so that won't be a
problem.)

Please reply off line.

Thanks very much.

Best,
Richard

Comment:        RE: SHK 13.2295 Re: Pop Shakespeare

Along this line there might be interest in the second mystery in my now
5-book Jeremiah St. John detective series. The novel is ACCORDING TO ST.
JOHN and uses the murder of the actress playing Lady Macbeth as the
major crime. The understudy is accused of the murder and Jeremiah comes
in to solve the case. The novel contains and uses in the plot various
scenes from the Scottish play with my directorial interpretation. Which
was fun to do since my fictional actors could not complain. And of
course the audience loved it. This book is available from Amazon.com and
barnesandnoble.com etc.
