A version that a fan's wife had made for him for Christmas. I think I'm going to go for a smaller, cheaper paperback format first, thinking 5" x 8" (or A5, they're close enough) (looks like this: front, and showing thickness). I'll make a hardcover certainly, but since it will likely cost more, I'll do it after the cheaper softcover, to help get the kinks out. The hardcover might be larger, but, not sure what size. The fan's-wife size, above, feels awkward to me, to read, like it needs pictures or something (I've found a great source of pictures, so it's a possibility).

Progress: TODO:
  1. Make e-pub versions.
  2. https://blog.reedsy.com/guide/parts-of-a-book/
  3. For the hard printing, find some nice quotes about the book on /pol/ to put on the back cover.
  4. Make a glossary with links, here! There are a lot of esoteric(? or otherwise) references, that I sure wasn't familiar with.
  5. The Sacred Sword is described as a gladius Hispaniensis (Google search). It is my impression that Murdoch chose his chapter header images off-the-cuff (but he wanted fan images); it would be nice if we could put some fan-generated art in the book. If some artist could make a reasonable-looking picture of a gladius Hispaniensis Sacred Sword, well I'd like to use something like that.

Know this: I can't give out free copies for contributors, but if you contribute, I will acknowledge your contribution to a family-friendly handle of your choosing (or your actual name if you swing that way) in an acknowledgements section.

Reminder, I'm going to try to sell this for cost. But, that probably won't produce much savings, iirc authors only make $1-$2 per book anyway. Wrt color etc, I'm aiming at ~$30, so whatever features that allows. I'm going to go for durable and nice when given the choice. I currently think I might publish twice at different places, one nicer, one cheaper; two places, for resilience. Even though it's got 'Semitic goblins' in it and will very likely get deplatformed, well there are enough platforms that I hope we'll be able to keep it available. You know, I wonder whether it would be worth abbreviating to 'SGs'? Some Jews did something like that with the Talmud. When the Talmud was discovered, they bowdlerized the language, and published a second book of 'corrections' that restored the original language. So they could say: "No, the Talmud doesn't say that!" (Source: Israel Shahak's, "Jewish History, Jewish Religion"). Anyway, it occurs to me that against its getting coordinatedly targeted (too paranoid?), you might want to buy fast, once it's out. I'm sure all these little places have terms about 'hate'.

Frontispiece image, Murdoch's merch poster 'Chase the Sun'. Original, too small:
A man on a half-statue head with a nazi-flag cape.
'AI' upscaled - if anyone bought the poster and wants to take a high-res picture, as flat as possible, and send it in, I'd sure be grateful. Most especially focusing on the figure himself.

Murdoch's chapter header images - if you have a good-quality image to replace one of the chapter headers (or to just add to a chapter), send it in! I think Murdoch wanted to see fan contributions (he said, 'you can use anything for the pictures', and, that he wanted to hear it read to him. Ok, so I'm generalizing a bit, but I bet I'm not much wrong.
