Post Blissett, Luther: Q. (Italian) v3.1 28 Jul 2013

Luther Blissett is the collective pseudonym used by four Italian authors: Roberto Bui, Giovanni Cattabriga, Federico Guglielmi and Luca Di Meo. The four were part of the so-called "Luther Blissett Project", which ended in 1999. Now they write under the "Wu Ming" name.

Q is a novel by these authors, first published in Italian in 1999. The novel is set in Europe during the 16th century, and deals with Protestant reformation movements. It is published under a Creative Commons license, and it's available at http://www.wumingfoundation.com/ital...ownloads.shtml

This is the original Italian version, created from the TXT file, but with formatting added (TOC, titles, pagebreaks, dashes...). It's not proofread because my knowledge of Italian is limited (but it's "read" at least), so I'd thank any help here.

Any kind of feedback is welcome.

EDIT (v2): Updated to support the epub2pdf script.

EDIT (v3): Added maps, new cover, decorative font for titles and some additional corrections (stray commas, unified spacing around dashes...)

EDIT (v3.1): Minor fixes in links and metadata.

Just a blind shot, but does anyone have access to a printed edition of this book (preferably in Italian, but other languages may do it too)?

I have a question about the formatting, and I don't trust the online texts for this.

Hi,

thanks for your effort (Q is a great book, like the sequel, Altai), but there is an "official" EPUB version, downloadable from the Web site of the Wu Ming Foundation:

http://www.wumingfoundation.com/giap/?page_id=6338

I think that this version is proof-read and/or produced from the original DOC source.

I don't know if it's proofread, but the formatting leaves much to be desired (hyphens instead of dashes, multiple empty paragraphs instead of vertical margins, non-curly apostrophes...).

My question is about the "scene breaks". Some of them have asterisks, some other are just blank lines. In printed books this usually happens because asterisks are put when a scene break happens to fall at a page break. But it could also be that there are different kinds of scene breaks. I'd like to know whether in the printed book there are both blank and asterisk scene breaks at mid-page, or all asterisk scene breaks are at the bottom/top of a page.
