The 'Lantern' Archive: Now that I have a bigger and better scanner, I've been able to add scans of 'Lantern' Nos. 3-7, which were too large for my old scanner to handle. I've also re-scanned issues 8-40, for greater clarity.
 
Shuckland:
Removed Ampton (Suffolk) from the list of locations, & changed it to Great Livermere, as the encounter in 'Dubious Cases' turned out to refer to this location, & I now have a better source.
Also in 'Dubious Cases', I have entered a new story under Great Livermere.
