I’ve tracked down about half of these, and they are all pretty slight. Which is, you know, unsurprising as they can’t contain anything really significant or connected to other things because of their relatively limited access. The Abigail one is probably the best and most complete, because it’s nice to get time with her where she’s not being overshadowed by Peter or Nightingale, and the story can just be about her isolated experience. The story kind of raises more questions than it answers, however.
