My latest (and last) Lonely Planet guide (7th, 2001; with co-authors Pat Yale and Richard Plunkett).
My first book (1971), for Frommer’s. To my surprise, it soon became the best-seller to the destination.
2nd edition of my Lonely Planet Istanbulguide (1999), with cover photo by my friend Kim Grant.
LP Turkey Travel Atlas: I set up a database to deal with the 12,000 town and village names.
Disclaimer: my Turkey Travel Planner website has no relationship whatsoever with Frommer’s or Lonely Planet Publications or the guidebooks published by these companies. At present I am fully employed producing Turkey Travel Plannerand other websites, so I am not employed by either of these companies and I devote no time to maintaining or updating any of their publications. Because I was the original and longtime author of guides published by these companies, my name may still be mentioned in these and later editions of these books as a courtesy and/or acknowledgement of my earlier contributions to these works. —Tom Brosnahan
