1: You sell yourself unbelievably short.
2: If I would travel to Slovenia purely to mushroom hunt with the help of a text of your making, someone else probably would as well. The popularity of region-specific texts is not limited to the region(s) they refer to. The market for a Slovenian fungi reference includes mycologists and mushroom hunters from throughout Eastern Europe and the rest of the world, especially if it’s written in English.
Thank you Danny and Martin. Danny, I regret, but there will be nothing with the book you would like to see. I am incompetent to write something good in mycology. Also in a nation with 2 M people it is impossible to find a publisher, who would consciously enter loss in business.
When is your book coming out? I’ll take a dozen.
