Inspiration for Field Notes Quarterly Editions can strike anytime, from anywhere.

The Beadles had published a variety of inexpensive paperback books on subjects ranging from the tax code to baseball, but when they released Ann S. Stephens' frontier tale Malaeska as the first of their orange-covered "Dime Novel" series, it sold more than sixty thousand copies and started a trend for cheap pocket-sized genre fiction.
