It'll be 5 x 8, standard paperback size. The prices are as follows:

Per Page                         $0.03
Flat Binding Fee   $7

We're using a perfect binding, paperback, and I suppose we'd be using about...a hundred/ a hundred and twenty pages? So each one would cost roughly $10.6 or 5.21, without any profit added. Say we round it up so it's $11 and 6 apiece; giving the extra amount of cash to the site...maybe if it gets popular enough in the future, we can add more to it to reward those who contribute.

And no, not ten pages double-spaced. TEN. PAGES. No spaces. Most writers can manage a page a day, give or take, and I'm sure if I give all applicants time enough to think about their subject and what they're going to write, we'll be laughing. Ten A4 pages is about equal to 20 5 x 8 pages, so we'll get a decent amount of decently sized stories together in a decent amount of time.

I like your idea, Jewie...but I also like the free-form way of this compilation...

I believe we shall have two of these books. One for these random ones, and one for a consise view of a fictional world. An Entilea view.

Anything else?
