Shakespeare’s collaborators?

Brian Vickers argues in Shakespeare, Co-Author that the evidence shows substantial work by other playwrights appears in five Shakespeare plays:

The plays are not the top five in the Shakespeare canon. But the overwhelming evidence in the book shows that George Peele, not Shakespeare, wrote almost a third of “Titus Andronicus”; Thomas Middleton, about two-fifths of “Timon of Athens”; George Wilkins, two of the five acts of “Pericles”; and John Fletcher, more than half of “Henry VIII.” “The Two Noble Kinsmen,” originally published in 1634 as the work of Shakespeare and Fletcher, is shown to be about two-fifths Shakespeare’s.
