I am in need of preparing a book for publication (collection of short stories). Simple text, no images, no formulas, the fanciest thing needed is some paragraph formatting with left/right margins, plus some titles/subtitles. Almost doable with any word processing software. But I don't trust word processors enough. Eons ago I would just use Quark, but I have no access to it, nor a legal version that I could install. Buying it for a single book is not an option. I can hire someone, but first I want to take a look at other possibilities. My first bets are LaTeX and Scribus (yes, completely different philosophy, but it is the end result that I am interested in). And other ideas? Any experience with using LaTeX for fiction?
