There has to be a starting point. If Sean had called for entries people would have been tripping all over themselves to participate.
One of the major factors that have been discussed is the cost qnd the only way to determine what the cost will be is to find out how many people will be involved and how big the book will be and to that end we need submissions. We can discuss this until the cows come home but the end is still the same no matter what route we take. If the cost of using Lodima is to great we would still have all of the submissions in one place so that we could explore other options.
I would be more than happy to let this just go the way it is going and nothing would get done. I am simply taking control of the situation and moving this forward in the the way that has been presented as the most viable. I am not trying to be coarse and demanding but I want to create a book plain and simple.
