  11. Just to update, the list of Shetland authors is now over 200 and still growing - and a number of the early articles have been enlarged or amended. But as many of the entries are mere stubs, and many more could do with further information either on the author or their works, there's lots more to be done on the existing 200. If anybody is in a position to help, please do - and if you're unsure how to go about making or editing entries, do PM.
