Anything is possible. The easy way out is to use the 'article' class. It
doesn't have chapters, instead "section" is the highest level in the
So you can start each of your chapters as a new "section", and they will
start immediately. You may have two such "chapters" on the same page, if
they are short enough. Or one chapter ending high on a page, and the
next one starting a bit further down.
Article sections are numbered, and they are listed in the table of
contents too. You may list them in the index too, of course.
I have a book with a series of short essays. While these need chapter
numbers, and listing in the index, it is not necessary for the essays
to begin on a new page. Would be grateful for any help. Thanks, FN
You can't use this scheme if you also need section and subsection
numbers in your book. But if you don't, just use "sections" as
"chapters" and get what you want without a lot of TeX-code.
