ARRSE in Print

#1
Greetings peeps.

As you may or may not know, there have been various discussions about getting some of our more gifted storytellers published (RTFQ, Auld Sapper & Convoy C0ck to name but a few).

What I intend to do is to collate & publish an 'Arrse Compendium'.
The finished article will be a properly bound paperback.

Initial thoughts are that I'll start with Cutaways 'Mega Thread List' (reproduced at the bottom of this post).
I intend to edit out the irrelevant crap - posts like "that was great :D :D :D " etc to just leave quality reading material.

I'd like thoughts from ARRSErs as to :-

a. Is it a good idea?
b. Would you buy it?
c. What Price point should I be aiming for?
d. Swearing in or not (or masked)?
e. Where should the profits go? (ARRSE/The Authors/Charity(which)/Me?)


Also need volunteers to proofread & to create a preface/forward giving some general background on ARRSE & ARRSERS, & produce artwork.
Obviously all the material is in the public domain & freely available, but if anyone wants NOT to have there writings published, then let me know.
The 'Mega Thread List' is below - please feel free to abuse me if there's anything obvious that I've missed.

TTFN

BFG

Here's the latest version - although a few need culling.
"Party tricks" started well but died, and I added Convoy's "My wife and her divvy fcuking tent" as soon as it came out, and it didn't take off as quickly as I had hoped. No reflection on the fine start he'd made but there are a number of bone posts including but not limited to this :

Someone who will remain nameless for a small donation of alcohol said:
With all the Arrsers pub crawls, maybe we should organise an arrsers family camp-out.....
I ask you, what's a bloke to do ? It's enough to make a grown drunk cry !

a. Is it a good idea?
b. Would you buy it?
c. What Price point should I be aiming for?
d. Swearing in or not (or masked)?
e. Where should the profits go? (ARRSE/The Authors/Charity(which)/Me?)


a. Of course
b. If I could get my grubby hands on it, yes
c. £10-£12 (whats that in euro?)...would it be stocked in NAAFIs etc? How about a free ARRSE sticker with it to spread the word?
d. In- f***ing etc interrupts the flow of a good story
e. Charity- nice PR opportunity for ARRSE as well as a good cause. Something Forces related no doubt. Though the question is, would charidees be willing to associated with such a blatantly unPC place such as this?



Also need volunteers to proofread & to create a preface/forward giving some general background on ARRSE & ARRSERS, & produce artwork.

Proofreading is a must. What sort of a background are you thinking of, eg "POSTER X is a former lance corporal with the RLC, serving in Bosnia, BOAR and NI. He currently tests alcohol for a major alcoholic beverages company and lives with his dog on a houseboat" sort of thing or "POSTER X joined ARRSE in February 2003 and mainly contributes to the NAAFI forum, where he delights fellow members with his skiffing tales"...?
Artwork eh? Would including photos be too expensive?

PM me mate, I was a technical proof-reader until about 5 years ago.
The job'll be a piece of p*ss.

Have you got the printer and publisher lined up yet?

Also, suggest SSAFA or RBL Poppy appeal for the charities. I know there's talk of amalgamating the two in a few years time.
 
#11
I suggest a small dictionary to accompany it, so the army phrases can be understood by the great unwashed. Some of the explainations of the phrases would add agreat deal of depth, humour and history to the book. REMF, WTF etc!

suggested titles,

Now thats' what I call an ARRSE!
The stories my ARRSE could tell! (an unfortunate double meaning there!)
Look at the ARRSE on that!
 
#12
I've got a publisher & a printer.
The offers for proofreading are coming in thick & fast.

I'm waiting for a response from the CO's about database access, at the moment, but my guess is it's going to be at least a month before I can get the first draft collated.


TTFN

BFG, excellent, I am suggesting that for the public to get the most out of the stories, a section of the book should be a "glossary of terms"/dictionary.

l8r dude.

d. Swearing in or not (or masked)?

a. You bet your ARRSE it is!
b. As presents for everyone I know!
c. Not less than £10.
d. I would suggest that the original text should be left as un-tampered with as possible. I think if you started tampering you might lose something of the humour. Certainly swearing should be left in the format that it appears on the site - the creativity and diversity of the way expletives are rendered beautifully complements the banality and perversity of many of the threads!
e. Charity? Definitely. ABF/Poppy Appeal? Probably.

Hmmm. This is a toughy. I like the idea but I have a couple of realistic problems.

1. I'm currently knocking something together. I haven't decided whether it will include any of the set peices from PME and from the squaddies behaving like normal people, it may not do to be fair, it depends on how good I am at flat out making sh1t up (real life, albeit exaggerated/characturised, is funnier).

2. Auld Sapper might (and bloody well should) be doing the same.

3. There's a certain amount of "what goes in the naafi, stays in the naafi" which makes it the vulgar and open forum it is. If the book does get made, please don't put the bum love thread in, it's the only one I would REALLY get in ball-punching trouble for.

4. From a business point of view, there's actually at least 3 or 4 books that could spawn from arrse, with some more elaboration/tidying up. The most obvious is the Stumpy tales - a nation that loves humour and animals (dogs in particular) and a market that likes its military stories - it's gold, pure and simple. It's a shame that stumpy didn't also have a pup currently serving on Telic (with an equally funny handler), because we'd be looking at a worldwide bestseller.

5. It may, in a weird way, detract from arrse.co.uk. We all struggle to live up to some of the classic threads that appeared over the last few years, and I remember that the real hook to joining arrse was going back over the many classics and trying not to snot on my keyboard. If we put all the greats into one book it will undoubtedly draw a new (and large) audience, but the day to day stuff is never going to be as funny, and the lasting appeal provided by the gems hidden in the archives won't be there anymore.

These are my initial thoughts only, I need some more time to ponder it. I have a feeling that there are a couple of people on here looking at knocking some material up that is inspired by arrse. If it's done properly it will make an impact, but we need to work the market, not blow our wad in its face.

Like I say, initial thoughts only, I'm not naysaying.

a. Absolutely!
b. Yes!
c. Not less than £10.
d. In, and left as written on ARRSE!
e. Charity. I suggest Combat Stress, not least because the threads were contributed to by members or ex-members of all the services, and the police, and Combat Stress look after the same groups.

I suggest that some of the spellings (other than swearing), should be corrected for the sake of clarity. Also, a foreword by someone well known and who has served would add credibility and help with sales - Tim Collins, Lord Garden, Fatty Soames or similar, for example. I think there also needs to be some sort of explanation of the serious side of ARRSE, and why squaddie humour is as it is.
