Hi Gary:Janet the Shark:
So production has released the original copy-edited ms. of The Pericles Commission back to us. Traditionally, original manuscripts were returned to the author – for reasons both long and no longer nearly as germane in this digital world – but nowadays most authors prefer that we simply recycle them at our end. However, if you want this back for posterity – or some authors include the ms. in the papers that they donate to an archive somewhere – just let Hannah know and she’ll send it on to you via
slow boat to Australiawinged steed. Or something like it.
Or you could send it by smelly donkey over to FPLM. I have several you can borrow if you don't keep a stable anymore.Keith the Editor:
Okey dokey. Over to you. As soon as we can find a spare llama to port it over to you on. Or the postal service, for as long as it lasts.Hannah the Editorial Assistant:
I've located a menagerie of animals to escort the MS back to you-- it will be on its way soon!So that's how publishing works! Seriously, these guys are the ones who should be writing the funny books.
