To mark the upcoming release of his latest adventures, Elizabethan spy Mal Catlyn will once more be tweeting his exploits for the next three months. Why, you might ask, would a spy be broadcasting his whereabouts on a public network? Well…
- He could well be using one of the many cunning ciphers that were invented by 16th-century cryptographer Thomas Phelippes;
- He’s a spy, so you can’t trust anything he says;
- The internet didn’t exist in 1594, so who’s going to read them? Duh!
As with his previous outing, #malsdiary,
I’ll he’ll be tweeting in “real time” (give or take 418 years), segueing into the events of The Merchant of Dreams in January.
