[Tex/LaTex] Author(s) per chapter – short story collection


I'm trying to use LaTeX to typeset a collection of short stories. I need something that lets each chapter have its own author or authors, with the author name(s) listed along with the chapter title, in the table of contents, and possibly also in running heads (I haven't decided yet how fancy I want to make the running heads). I'm not having any luck finding something that does this in CTAN, can anyone recommend anything?

Possibly (I haven't tried it myself) you can use memoir and \chapterprecis:

From 6.5.8 of the memoir manual:

The command \chapterprecis prints its argument both at the point in the document where it is called, and also adds it to the .toc file. For example:

\chapter{}% first chapter
\chapterprecis{Our hero is introduced; family tree; early days.}



The \chapterprecis command calls these two commands to print the <text> in the document (the \chapterprecishere command) and to put it into the ToC (the \chapterprecistoc command). These can be used individually if required.

It also has commands to alter the font and style used for \chapterprecis.
