Shakespeare Beyond Doubt? -- Exposing an Industry in Denial by John M. Shahan and Alexander Waugh 

From: DoubAboutWill.org

Unsettled by the success of the Shakespeare Authorship Coalition and its Declaration of Reasonable Doubt About the Identity of William Shakespeare, the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in Stratford-upon-Avon claims in its book Shakespeare Beyond Doubt that there is “no doubt” that Shakspere of Stratford wrote the works of William Shakespeare. This book questions that claim, and thus its near-identical title, Shakespeare Beyond Doubt? In this devastating reply a dozen top scholars expose the bankruptcy of the SBT claim and challenge them to defend their position under cross-examination in a televised mock trial.

    The plays were always attributed to the well-known actor from Stratford. I've never seen any solid evidence that anyone else wrote them, not Bacon, Marlowe, or Oxford. But I find the argument entertaining...
