Our Belief is that Christopher Marlowe - in his day England's greatest playwright -  did not die in 1593 but survived to write most of what is now assumed to be the work of William Shakespeare.

Our Plan is to present accurate information and well-reasoned argument related to this belief.

Our Aim is to have this theory accepted by Shakespearian scholars and others as the only plausible alternative to the traditional 'Stratfordian' position.

Reviews from Amazon.co.uk

'The best book I've read for a long time. Truly innovative, truly original, and a powerful poetic journey to another truth. Ros Barber has told a great story, in a fascinating way, so fascinating that she had someone like me gripped to the very end. This really is a joy to read and a true work of art.'
-- Benjamin Zephaniah

'This terrifically accomplished and enjoyable novel/play/poem, call it what you like, restores one's faith in English fiction.'
-- Fay Weldon

'A rare find indeed - searing poetry meets compelling narrative in a historical tour de force that had me ripping through the pages.'
-- Robyn Young

'now that I've reached the end I want to go back and read it all again...Written in Marlowe's voice the reader doesn't need to know his work or that of Shakespeare to enjoy the book and relish the accomplishment of the author...The proof copy I read is already battered with rereading. I will be buying myself a hardback copy when it comes out. Don't buy it on an e-reader, buy a proper copy and hold it lovingly as you read.'
