- Note from the General Editors
We would like to alert readers to a few pieces appearing in SHAW 28 in addition to the twelve essays devoted to the volume's theme "Shaw and War." While SHAW has not often included obituary notices, we felt that the sad news of the deaths of prominent Shavians Dan H. Laurence and Barry Morse warranted substantial acknowledgment. Laurence, who died on 5 February at the age of eighty-seven, is memorialized by an obituary by Dick Dietrich and by the delightful stories collected by Nicholas Grene. Morse, who died on 2 February at the age of eighty-nine, is remembered in this volume by a tribute from the members of the committee of the Shaw Society (U.K.).
Also added to this volume is Dick Dietrich's interview with actor David Staller regarding "Project Shaw," his ongoing readings of Shaw's complete works. The interview appears in the "Reviews" section, which we are broadening to include, in future SHAW volumes, similar pieces on figures important to the acting and performing of Shaw's works.
