Goldstein resigns as BC managing editor

With the publication of the Shakespeare Fellowship online journal, Brief Chronicles Vol. 3, Managing Editor Gary Goldstein resigned, citing philosophical differences with Brief Chronicles General Editor Roger Stritmatter. Goldstein's resignation follows his resignation from the Shakespeare Fellowship board of directors in July 2011 in protest against the board's decision to rescind their statement against the Prince Tudor aspects of Roland Emmerich's Shakespeare authorship film Anonymous. Goldstein's position against the so-called Prince Tudor theory of Shakespeare authorship also played a part in his decision to leave his position with Brief Chronicles. [Content withdrawn.] Shakespeare Fellowship President Earl Showerman said the board is in the process of selecting a new managing editor and they would make an announcement when they had an agreement. He said that he hoped the announcement would be made soon.
