A cohesive manuscript is coming together. . .


I've actually managed to make some final corrections to the latest article/chapter in the last couple of days. In addition, I began assembling a bunch of disparate sections into a cohesive manuscript for the developing book on wargaming this afternoon. Hurrah!!! It would appear that I haven't been as much of a slug the last few weeks as I was beginning to suspect! ;-) So, barring any unforeseen surprises, the book will consist of twelve sections, an endpiece, an appendix, and a select bibliography. . . plus at least a few illustrations in the form of photographs. Now, I'm not quite ready to bug publishers just yet. There is still a short way to go until the basic manuscript is completed. I have several sections to finish and tune up, plus a few more to actually start, but there is at least some light at the end of the tunnel. Suffice to say, that it was a blast to assemble everything, and take in how much I've managed to finish up to this point. It's a good feeling.

Way to Stokes! I'll be looking forward to when it hits the shelves! With all the gaming "Classic Work Reprints" available, Battlegames, and Brig. Grant's new stuff rolling off the line, is this a great time to be a wargamer or what?!

Yours,

Martin

Stokes,

So now you have yet another "child" to look forward to.

I hope that all continues to progress well.
