For far too long I've been preparing the the fifth edition of my book The Walker's Handbook originally published by Penguin in 1978 and now long out of and out of date and out of print. The new edition is intended to cover comprehensively all aspects and levels of walking and backpacking in both lowland and upland areas up to and including scrambling. If I can't find a publisher with whom I can work then I shall publish it as an e-book.
I've learnt a great deal by following the posts on this forum and am wondering whether it would be possible, and permissible under Outdoors Magic rules, to invite anyone who may be interested to download a chapter from my website and check it for errors of fact, spelling, syntax, ambiguities and omissions. Every paragraph will be numbered so critics will be able to copy and paste the section of text on which they wish to comment, either on this thread for general discussion, or privately by email. An acknowledgement to this forum will appear in the book, and any individual who has been particularly helpful will be named.
Needless to say that, although I welcome constructive criticism and comment, the author's decision will be final!
If anyone has a better idea for inviting criticism, I should be grateful to hear from them.
If this post gets a sufficiently supportive response then I propose to publish the chapter dealing with maps on my website within the next two weeks. An announcement will appear on this thread.
