Irvin Leigh Matus passed away Jan. 5, 2011

We were sad to learn that Irvin Leigh Matus, 69, author of Shakespeare, In Fact (Continuum, 1994), passed away on January 5, 2011 of natural causes, according to his website, Willyshakes. Matus' book and other work offered rebuttal of anti-Stratfordian authorship arguments. Links to his work are available on the All Things Shakespeare pages of his website. Richard Whalen's 1995 review of Shakespeare, In Fact titled "Matus's Cannonade Against Oxford Misfires" appears on the Shakespeare Fellowship website.
