Hellenistic Greek Reader,
I have a publisher handy (don't ask, I can not tell you) who would put this
sort of book into print if we could come up with few hundred subscribers who
would purchase it in advance. The book would be published using print on
demand technology and would cost about $20.
As a profitability venture I think this project is hopelessly futile. There
doesn't seem to be much reason for anyone to put a lot of work into finding
public domain e-texts and editing the texts, and so forth.
If anyone wants to do all the work (unless you have publishing experience
you probably don't appreciate how much work this is going to be), anyway, I
think the book could be put into print but it will have to be reduced to a
"camera ready" .pdf file before it will be accepted.
Please don't send me your wishes, send me a detailed formal book proposal
and I will pass it on to the publisher who is short on time since he is
fighting a nasty lawsuit with a big (huge) literary estate. If you don't
know what a book proposal is don't send my anything at all.
