Subject:        Burgess Short Story

A friend of mine was asking about a short story by Anthony Burgess,
apparently a parody of the authorship question, in which someone intent
on discovering the "true author" of the Plays travels back in time with
a book of the Plays in hand, or at least one play (Hamlet?), and hunts
down Shakespeare, who promptly kills him, takes the book for copying,
and makes a comment to the effect that "they've sent another
one"...sound familiar to anyone?

Thanks in advance,
Debra Murphy
