    Wilder Publications / Fantastic Books

    Has anyone heard any recent news about Fantastic Books? I thought they were a POD publisher for out of print titles, but "a friend of a friend" claims that they were purchased and are now looking for submissions. Thoughts?

    is this them? http://www.fantasticbooksonline.com

    If it is, I HOPE they haven't launched yet. they don't have page numbers (xxx pages) and their excepts are all filler text.
