I've drawn the information for this page from a rather wide variety of sources. Rather than list them all in a proper Works Cited or Heaven forbid it an honest Bibliography I choose to present my sources in a rather less formal format I prefer to think of as an acknowledgement section. If this seems somewhat improper so be it. This is a web document and not a professional publication and it seems to be somewhat traditional, to the extent that something as young as the 'net can even have traditions, for amatuer web pages to be completely undocumented anyway. This then, is a somewhat comprehensive list of people and literature proving helpful to me. It is not exhaustive, and is somewhat dependant upon my ability to locate my poorly recorded sources and manage some form of citation here. Drop me a line if there is a reference you feel should be added, or if I've missed giving you your due recogniton!
