The idea for this volume dates back to a collaboration proposed by Michael in 2012, and the book’s development has taken some time, a change of publisher, and the assistance of a variety of people. We express our appreciation to those who have contributed directly or through discussion of the themes in this Handbook.

First we owe a huge debt to the contributors to this volume, who responded cheerfully to our requests (and on occasion pleading), and came through brilliantly. They have been a pleasure to work with throughout.

Angus would like to acknowledge the unwavering support of colleagues at the Oxford International Centre for Publishing; as well as colleagues in the European E-READ working group, attendees at the By the Book conference, the editorial board of Logos, and the members of the Zadar Swimming Club. He would like to thank his family for their support: Ann, Matthew, Charlotte, and Jamie.

Michael would like to thank all his colleagues at Canelo, a company which came into being during the genesis of this book, and in particular his co-founders Iain Millar and Nick Barreto. All of us live the realities, the highs, and lows outlined in this book every day. The wider publishing and scholarly community is a constant source of inspiration, and we are lucky to work in such a voluble, sociable, and congenial area as this. Lastly, he would like to thank his wife Danielle for endless patience and support and his son Monty, another new arrival since the beginning of this project.

At OUP we would like to thank our editors, Adam Swallow and Jenny King, for their enthusiasm and expertise. To David Musson our special thanks for taking the book on shortly before his retirement. Cyril Cox may or may not know of his contribution to the birth of this volume—either way he is fondly remembered.
