Publishing

In the field of publishing, I undertake small freelance jobs as a copyeditor, indexer, typesetter, and book designer (as well as writing the wretched things when I run out of excuses not to, and acting as a publisher through a small publishing house The Armatura Press, where I am the teaboy). I run an alarming number of websites, and I have edited and published a newsletter on the subject of Roman military equipment, Arma, and edit a similarly targeted academic journal, the Journal of Roman Military Equipment Studies.

In the unlikely eventuality that you want to see a list of works with which I have been involved, there follows just such a catalogue. A better strategy might be to go and make a cup of tea instead...
