Chinese Whispers - Sources Books I & II

This bibliography includes sources used for Chinese Whispers Books I & II. Throughout, I have tried to document my sources of information accurately. As this research took place over some thirteen years, some may have slipped through the cracks. If this is the case, I apologise. As I am more used to writing academic papers than novels, my original inclination was to produce a work cited section in a standardised manner, such as MLA. However, I concluded that the format below is more user-friendly. Items that are highlighted in vivid orange are links to websites.
