Has anyone here written or plans to write a history book?

What do you think of the standards at Brill?
They get on my nerves. The academic quality of the books is always high, but for what they charge they need to do a bit more work. I reviewed a certain volume a few years back that they sold for $350 USD, and I was convinced that the author was not a native speaker based on the complete mess that was the writing in the notes. Turned out he was, and no one at Brill seems to have given them so much as a glance.

There's a character in one of Scott Fitzgerald's books who amused himself for twenty years on the great books he would write one day and then spent the next twenty years bemoaning how fate had stopped him doing so.
