About Gatwood Publishing
Gatwood Publishing is an independent book publisher owned and operated
by David Gatwood. GP currently publishes the Patriots series of
science fiction novels. These books are in the process of being handed off
for print publishing and electronic publishing, and should be available
in paperback, hardcover, EPUB, and MOBI (Kindle) formats in early 2015.
On this website, you'll find information about GP's books, but you'll
also find information about how they were produced. For example:
- These books use a number of custom fonts. These fonts are derived
from existing SIL-licensed fonts, with various glyph changes, kerning
changes, and other tweaks. You can download these fonts for your own
use from our fonts page.
- These novels are produced using a highly customized toolchain that
translates DocBook XML (with a few custom extensions) into LaTeX code for
PDF output. You can find helpful LaTeX code snippets
on our LaTeX Tips page.
- When producing EPUB content, you'll run into a number of bugs specific
to particular readers. You'll find one tip (with code) and links to others
on the EPUB Tips page.
And you'll also find a bunch of old links to the pre-GP content of
the gatwood.net website, for your convenience in the "Miscellaneous"
