    Hi Nick,
    Just stumbled across your bibliography. Thank you very much for this, it is going to be extremely useful for me and my research for my dissertation. Do you have plans to update your original .pdf to V.1.20 to include these new references? It would be greatly appreciated.


  2. Eventually I will do an updated version of the large bibliography, not only to include the above information but also some of the other stuff I’ve missed, but I don’t know when this will be.
