    Arkham House Publishers

    I think this is a small, old company. I would like to submit there, because I like smaller places. I would like to see if anyone knows about their legitimacy though, before I do.

    Arkham is indeed one of the Old Ones, although I'd consider them more elite than small. Best of luck.

    Wouldn't someone have to have an unspeakable ancestral taint in their blood in order to be published by Arkham?
    It seems to me that most of their manuscripts would have to be incomplete, trailing off into utterances that could not come from any mortal throat, or at the very least, symbols not found on a mortal typewriter.
    Though I suppose with all the specialised fonts around, that's getting easier.

    Operations currently suspended following the death of April Derleth earlier this year. Her children intend to take over the business, although there has been little word as to when it will resume.
