It’s both impressive and depressing to see that a book I wrote for a flat fee in 1998 continues to be republished in new formats and languages around the world. The book was originally “How to make and fly paper planes” and you can read details here. If anyone has copies of the overseas editions, I’d love one for my archive.
It’s actually quite unusual for publishers to pass on reprints and foreign language editions to authors. You’d think it was a relatively small and simple gesture, but no, it’s all about squeezing an extra few quid out of the product.
