|4th July 2004||Sheldon's Book...|
By Ian Essex
What are you writing...a sequel to War and Peace!? If I was your publisher...

Funny you should mention it.... My publisher has indeed asked for a shorter text, so a bit more editing will follow before its eventual publication (probably in November). But there'll still be three years' worth of research in it!

A shorter text? It's an outrage! :)

Steady! It won't get MUCH shorter - just short enough for the average punter to afford (and for the publisher to afford the print costs). I've been told it needs to be no more than about 400 text pages (illustrations may be additional) and should retail for about £25. Room for a sequel, maybe....
