The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 14.0645 Thurssday, 3 April 2003
Date: Thursday, April 03, 2003
Subject: "Nightfall" by Authur C. Clarke
I would first like to report that the SHAKSPER Spinoff team, under the
leadership of Douglas Lanier, has been actively planning the development
of the Spinoffs Database. More to follow.
There currently are two Pop Shakespeare Files on the file sever: the
Spinoffs File and the Character Bibliography. The later is a
bibliography of works in which Shakespeare is a character --
I would like to suggest an addition to this list.
As a fan of audiobooks, I am currently listening to <I>The Collected
Stories of Arthur C. Clarke</I>. The second story, "Nightfall"
(<I>King's College Review</I> 1947; reprinted as "The Curse" in <I>Reach
for Tomorrow</I>), evokes a post-apocalyptic vision of Stratford in
general and Shakespeare's grave in particular after a nuclear holocaust.
