    Apollo House Press

    I was actually googling standard manuscript format, and came across this, which doesn't seem to have a thread here:
    Apollo House Press

    They're closed to submissions until 2009, and say they specialise in sf/f and some nonfiction history, but only seem to have one title out, published earlier this year. I'd guess that it was started to publish the owner's books, which isn't uncommon.

    They also have a page of 'fantasy classics' (which indeed are well known works within the genre) and clicking on them brings up the Amazon page for that book. Quite what their connection is to Apollo House is unclear.

    Wow, I missed that. I don't expect that Piers Anthony or Terry Brooks or Guy Gavriel Kay are connected with Apollo House, so I suppose it's an Amazon Affiliate thing - wait, I think I've found what it is - Widgets.
    It does seem a bit misleading, but I guess it fills the space until they have an actual backlist. And at least they aren't over-reaching by putting out a whack of books all at once.
    Interview with the one author here, where it's described as "an independent press, based in Virginia and distributes through Atlas Books."

    Wait and see, I guess.
