I would be interested in publishing a book of short games. A compilation of out-of-the-box ideas in the 500-2000 word range. Before I begin soliciting for people to be included in my endeavor, is this something people would even be interested in submitting games for? I have no interest in owning the rights to your games, but rather to add them to a document of short games I've been working on for a while now.
Who would even want to be in a book like this? Knowing full-well that I'm going to edit your text heavily to make it match my publishing style?
(Knowing who I am might help you determine that I'm not a publish neophyte.)
So begins the conversation where I learn there's a better way to ask this question and I constantly update my verbiage to find a better way to ask this question.
