  1. If it’s to be as short as possible, I’d drop the – “whether novels, short stories, role-playing games, computer games, or another form” but also put a paragraph break between each sentence.

    Maybe the last sentence can just say “this” instead of the title again.

  2. Hey James,

    Sounds good! It looks like, from the blurb, that the book is intended as a springboard for other people to adapt and expand upon. Does that mean you’ll be going with a more liberal licence than the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial one that you went with for Sirens/New Death/Two-Fisted? Otherwise, I wonder if there’ll be a chilling effect where people will be reluctant to make full use of it.

    Cheers,
    Chris

      • PS Having thought about it, I’d need to say that direct quotes from other people belong to them…and it occurred to me that perhaps the more information I put the more confused people will be. I’m not sure what I should do now.

        • How about something like: “Original content is released under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International licence”? If you wanted to clarify, you could add a second sentence: “This covers content written by James Hutchings, but not direct quotes of others.”
