At some point after August 1592, most likely during 1593, English playwright and spy Christopher Marlowe was badly wounded in a duel in a London tavern. Marlowe survived. The control device implanted in his brain by the Greld during their attack on the Roanoke colony was removed by the attending surgeon, who was unaware of its true nature. Some time after his brush with death, Marlowe left London, allowing others to believe him dead. He later turned up in Venice using the name Giovanni Chigi. (PROSE: The Empire of Glass)
