    Brand new (opened May 2012). No books yet released.

    The magazine, which is a paying market, lists Richard Flores IV as the editor-in-chief; his credentials appear to be limited to planning to self-publish his own book. I couldn't find any info on the staff for the book side of the press, or their industry creds.

    The webpage has all the phrases I dread:
    "Offers an opportunity for authors to get the recognition they deserve."
    "Founded by writers for the benefit of writers."
    They also intimate that their contract is non-negotiable.

    How did you find them, V Rose?

    Duotrope listing for their magazine Plasma Frequency. It popped up in the "new markets" section of the email bulletin last week.

    Ah, clever you!

    I reckon they fall into the category of 'wait and see.'

    Random thread intrusion: I misread the title of this thread as "Spasma Plyglass Press" and all I could think is why the hell would anyone want to publish with a company with a name like that?!

    Their website doesn't inspire much confidence...The design is amateurish, imo.
