Generally, we do not post ultra-condensations submitted by readers. The reason is simple. If we post an ultra-condensation written by a reader, it deprives us the opportunity of doing it ourselves someday. Pleasure of process is one of the two biggest rewards of maintaining this site (the other is hearing from pleased readers), and we don't want to crimp our returns in that area on purpose. We hope you understand.

That said, a couple of times we've received some ultra-condensations from readers that we felt were outstanding and were for books neither one of us were planning to read in the near future. We made exceptions in these cases, and these submissions are currently available on the site for your reading pleasure. (At the top of each condensed book, the author is credited.)

At any rate, for the above reasons, we don't encourage readers to send us their own condensed books. However, if in light of this you'd still like to submit your work, we would be happy to read and consider it. We enjoy reader submissions -- we just want to make sure readers understand our terms for submissions before they go to the trouble of doing the work. Thanks!
