You're probably right. And we'll be lucky if the Orlanthi books don't fission again.... But I'm thinking its better to have more material than good. Speaking as someone who's been involved with other publications -- its a wonderful change to find that there's too much GOOD material to print....

I'd be suspecting that things will be printed as soon as they are in printable form. Since many of the books are being done out of house (I wouldn't say outhouse..) the scheduling is not precisely up to Issaries, I suspect. Who knows? We may end up with more books than we bargained for.

But I think Greg's made his feelings on that pretty plain -- you get him something in _publishable_ form and he'll be very interested in printing it. I suspect that's what's going on with the Prax Pak folks, innit?
