Subject: contractural obligation? Someone not on Humanist posed the following question to me. Answers would be most gratefully appreciated. Suppose a digital humanist signed a contract with publisher X for a book she proposed in some detail, as is normally the case. Years then went by, the author's mind chaged numerous times, during which period the imagined book no longer seemed the one to write. Rather concrete ideas for an essentially new book then emerged, some cross-over with the former one, but only some. Is this author contracturally obligated to stick with publisher X, or is she free to go to publisher Y with the new proposal? Many thanks.
