Hi Sharon,

This is really, really useful for me. Thank you!

I think I can get the Julie Davis book on inter library loan, but can't
seem to trace the Virginia Boston one. Have found another one of hers that
sounds similar in the British Library though.

I've also had a look at the online Cornell catalogue, and it looks like a
brilliant archive. There's loads of Scottish zines in there that look
really interesting.

I probably won't make it to the US though as my budget is pretty much
nonexistent, but it may be other archives have some of these titles.

This has certainly given me plenty to work with, so thank you!

Cazz
