I am an acquisitions editor at a book publisher, and I'm looking for an
author to write a book, tentatively titled The Shakespeare Book of
Lists. I was referred to you by Georgianna Ziegler of the Folger web
site who thought you might have an interest.
I see this as a "Fun Reference," containing both useful and trivial
information, with author compiling info in an interesting, eclectic
format. The reader never knows from one page to the next what
he’ll find, a diverse collection of Lists, many with appropriate
elaboration and commentary surrounding Shakespeare and his work, e.g.
The Shakespeare Timeline: 97 Events Surrounding the Bard's Life and
Work, 83 Key Characters in Shakespeare's Plays, 68 Classic Lines from
Shakespeare's Plays, The 12 Best Screen Adaptations of Shakespeare's
Works, 23 Best Shakespeare Sites on the Web, The Shakespeare Travel
Guide: A Walking Tour of 32 Sites...perhaps even a list ranking
Shakespeare's Best Comedies, Best Tragedies, etc.
The idea has been approved, it's now my job to find the perfect author.
If you are interested in discussing this project, or you know someone
who may be interested, can you please contact me? At this point, I am
actively discussing the project with several potential authors. I look
forward to hearing from you.
