Subject:        Shakespeare Mystery Novels

A few months ago, someone asked about mystery novels involving
Shakespeare.  Two have come to my attention recently, although I haven't
read either of them yet.

"Thirteenth Night" by Alan Gordon is a sequel to "Twelfth Night."  It
seems to be a rather silly story in which there's a Guild of Fools which
is a sort of ancient spy organization.  Feste is a spy / fool who is
depressed because he recntly failed to prevent the King Lear Tragedy.  A
message comes to him that Orsino is dead, and Feste suspects Malvolio.

"A Mystery of Errors" by Simon Hawke has Shakespeare as a character.
It's the first novel in a planned series.
