In the manner of recent publications of Huckleberry Finn, I would like to emend Twain's third group to "Apatosaurites," as Brontosaurus has been a scientifically obsolete name for decades.

I have not read Twain's take on Shakespeare, and am interested in this audio recording, so on the topic: did Twain have any thoughts on Delia Bacon, who started the whole Bacon controversy with Shakespeare? Delia was friends with the Beecher family.

Subject: Is Shakespeare Dead?

Hi there,

I recently published an audio book of Mark Twain's "Is Shakespeare Dead?" for Rambler Audio, my publishing company. If you'd like a 15% Mark Twain Forum discount just type SLC1835 in the Promo Code box that appears just above the directory. This discount will also apply to any of the other titles on my site.

"Is Shakespeare Dead?" is Mark Twain's take on the true authorship of the Shakespeare Canon. Funny, interesting, and controversial, this two hour forty-five minute audio book will give you great talking points for your next conversation with Shakespearites, Baconites, and Brontosaurites (Mark Twain counted himself as part of the third group.

You might not recognize my name, but I'm pretty sure you have heard my
voice: I was the first thing Phil connor (Bill Murray) heard every morning shouting "Rise and shine, campers!!" in the movie "Groundhog Day." I've also been playing Mark Twain on stages, TV, and film since 1967.
