Kirby,

How did OE compare to other Sarabande collections you've edited in terms of how much thought you had to put into it? Was it pretty standard, or did the extras dealing with pictures, various forms, etc. add to your normal task as editor?

I remember it as demanding more hands-on work than most collections, and yet there was less "work" involved. Much of the line-by-line editing was the usual stuff, improving sentences that the author has read over so many times that he no longer sees them, etc. Because of all the forms and graphics, however, clarity was an issue from my standpoint early on (indeed, during the process of making this book I referred to it as "Ander's Eccentricities"); merely typesetting the thing brought up issues one rarely has to deal with. For instance, in the title story, figuring where to place the diagrams and how large they should be; more drastic was when we hit on the idea of making the Index actually OPERABLE, i.e., the index subjects can be found on the pages listed there. This must have been a nightmare for Ander to do, but he was up for it. Madness!

I think we may have tweaked story order, too. But not much.
