SLUDER TAPPED FOR PROJECT
Fodor's, the world's largest publisher of English-language travel
guides, for the first time will produce a new guidebook devoted
entirely to Belize. Lan Sluder, the author or co-author of nine other
books on travel and retirement subjects and editor/publisher of BELIZE
FIRST, has been tapped to research and write the new guide. Sluder has
been writing and reporting about Belize for 15 years.
Previously, Fodor's published a guide that covers both Belize and
Guatemala. Sluder was co-author of Fodor's Belize & Guatemala 2005 and
previous editions of that guide. The new guide, set for publication in
2006, will be titled Fodor's Belize. A division of Random House and
owned by Bertelsmann AG, Fodor's Travel Publications publishes more
than 230 travel guides with sales of 5.5 million copies annually.
