I am looking for a sentence that tells someone that something is further ahead.

For example: if I want to tell a reader (currently reading page 20) about a topic that is further ahead (say on page 50) without mentioning the page, how will the sentence be?

Would it be something like: The topic is further ahead.

Also, please mention different ways of saying this. I want to learn different ways this sentence can be structured, for the sake of variety.

To inform the reader that more information will be coming later on you could use

This/[X] will be covered/discussed later

This/[X] will be covered/discussed in a later chapter

This/[X] will be covered/discussed in more detail/depth later on.

  • Thank you for your response. Your sentence is much better in this context, but I would still like to ask whether "(Something) is further ahead" is correct grammatically and whether it makes sense in some other context, say, a sign board that informs about a place further forward in space and tells to keep moving. How would such a sentence be?

    @Zaeem Certainly. The truck stop is further ahead. Although road signs would usually state a distance. Can also be used figuratively: Salvation is further ahead

  • In academic writing, it is very common to say that a topic will be "addressed below," "discussed below," etc. – particularly if the reference is to a point within a few pages farther along in the text. "Later" and especially "later on" would seem too colloquial in such a context; "in a later chapter" is OK, but "in Chapter 3" (or whatever) would be much better.
