Christopher Hill and I are now endeavouring to update the Press Digest on the Webb site as soon as we have details – approximately monthly – so those with Internet access do not have to wait three months to find out what is ‘current’.

We would also very much welcome other contributions, for periodicals not currently covered regularly. Please contact Chris James.
