Local Author, Peter Larner, publishes his thirteenth novel this month – his second this year. Entitled ‘Sure Uncertainty’, it is a fictional account of the Gunpowder Plot. Well, Anthony Burgess said that the virtue of historical fiction is its vice – the flatfooted affirmation of possibility as fact. It is possible that Shakespeare met Marlowe, as he does in Sure Uncertainty. It is possible that Marlowe’s untimely death caused some of his unpublished plays to end up in the hands of Shakespeare.
