Features

26 Invasion of the Diddymen (Cover Story)
SD Tucker asks who, or what, could possibly have been behind the supposed invasion of Liverpool by leprechauns in 1964 - was it elves, aliens, Beatlemania, mass hysteria or even Ken Dodd?

34 Elvis: The Comeback Special
It's 36 years since his death, but the King is still seen in shopping malls and supermarkets all over the US and even popped up at President Obama's inauguration. Now, the saga has taken a new twist, with the emergence of DNA evidence and a woman claiming to be Presley's half-sister. Ted Harrison reports.

44 Dr Dingwall's Casebook Part One: A Sceptical Enquirer
Eric John Dingwall, author, anthropologist, librarian, psychic investigator, and, to some, the 'British Kinsey', is less well known than his erstwhile colleage and sometime adversary, Harry Price, but is a figure of equal intrest, says Christopher Josiffe.
