Books in my Life

As many of you may or may not know I have worked much of my professional life in publishing. But it occurred to me I have never catalogued the books that I worked on. So I did. Here is a chronological list of the ones I remember; it’s possible I missed a few. I know I did at least one book with Jean Poulin at Duval House, but darned if I can remember what it was; I just remember the dobermans that would circle my desk hungrily. There are also a lot of newsletters and corporate type stuff I didn’t list: if it didn’t have an isbn or issn it’s not here.

Oh, and the total comes to 129 publications.

Disclaimer:
At the end of each publication I listed roughly what I did for each publication. Revisions indicates that the book was original done by someone else, but I worked on changes, corrections or updates to the new edition. Team means I was a contributing part of the department and my role was likely limited to checking proofs or doing a last minute change or two. Production means I worked on a bunch of pages, if not the whole book. Later in my career I was less hands on and more involved with overall strategies and management so it gets a bit confused between Publication Management and Production Management or Editorial Management etc. Publisher indicates it was produced under the aegis and initiative of the department I ran.

Be aware that my choices may not necessarily agree with what may be printed in the actual book or with the opinions of those who worked on the books with me. It’s tender area for many people and opinions vary from job to job about how much credit is due to whom. I’ve added the notes purely as a method of showing what kind of work I contributed and not as a statement of ownership. So if any of my old companions ever read this; rest assured I remember what you guys did… mostly… I am getting old you know…
