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 
numbering hierarchy.


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.


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

Article sections are numbered, and they are listed in the table of 
contents too. You may list them in the index too, of course.


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.

 That should be:
 open=any


Hmm, I am trying to solve the same problem---chapters starting on the same
page as the last one, just like sections---but the proposed fix does not
help. The Koma-Script docs say it will always start a chapter on a new page,
and open=any is used if either right- or left-facing pages are acceptable.

Does anyone know how to avoid both starting anew page and inserting a huge
amount of white space before the chapter title?

I found the following code in the Latex user group to solve the blank space
problem, but no solution (or no solution I could understand) to the new page
skipping:

\makeatletter
\renewcomman...@makechapterhead[1]{%
  %\vspace*{5...@}%

I did not try, but in book.cls, the chapter is defined with

\newcommand\chapter{...@openright\cleardoublepage\else\clearpage\fi
\thispagestyle{plain}%
\glob...@topnum\z@
\...@afterindentfalse
\secd...@chapter\@schapter}

So could you not just redefine chapter without the \clearpage stuff?

Something like

\renewcommand{\chapter}{\thispagestyle{plain}%
\glob...@topnum\z@
\...@afterindentfalse
\secd...@chapter\@schapter}


in the preamble (untested)?
