Barrie Schwortz to Publish 118 Issues of Rex Morgan’s Shroud News
… So Stephen Jones tells us. Moreover:
I have decided to re-start (again!) my Shroud of Turin News. The last issue was in October 2013. What prompted me was that I have started scanning the 118 issues of fellow Australian Rex Morgan’s Shroud News, with his permission, for a new archive of that name on Barrie Schwortz’ Shroud.com. According to Schwortz the Shroud News archive should commence "this summer," and will be announced in his imminent late April, update. Also, I had recently read Mark Guscin’s"Interview With Rex Morgan" in the BSTS Newsletter No. 63 of June 2006, in which Morgan [right] said:
There have been many letters asking me to resurrect Shroud News and I would much like to. The mountain of material I have assembled since the last one would enable me to produce issues for many more years.
While I do not claim that this is the successor to Morgan’s Shroud News(which is one reason I have called it "Shroud of Turin News"), I do hope that this new (or re-started) series will help in some small way to fill the void left by Morgan’s decision to not continue with his original Shroud News after December 2001. As before, I will add my comments to Shroud-related news and other articles in reverse chronological order (latest uppermost). My comments are in bold to distinguish them from the articles’.
I wish him luck. And, certainly, all of us will appreciate the scanning work he is undertaking.
