    Do you mean this one?

    It appears to be owned by a coder posting as merlyn, with a Yahoo ID of Gryphon Shafer, and whose home page identifies him as Randal L Schwartz, a consultant who who writes for Linux Magazine.

    The Steward House website is registered to Gryphon Shafer.

    They appear to be a small press, but I can't tell if they charge fees or not.

    How did you find them, Gondomir?

    There are only two books available for sale, published in 2009.

    Both are by Gryphon Shafer and/or J. Gryphon Shafer.

    Each has only 1 review. For 5 stars each.

    I'm not impressed.
    I still poop rainbows.




    I won't steal any of your ideas. I have enough of my own I'm not using.

    Yes, you found it. I actually stumbled across it when I was doing a search for poetry markets. Thank you for your help--they don't seem legit.

    Thanks, I will avoid this "market." Interestingly, in the same search I did that came up with Steward, Musa came up too. How do you like Musa?

    There's a whole thread here on Musa (in this section). The owner's a long-time member.

    Here's the Musa thread.

    If I had something suitable, I'd have no qualms about submitting to them.

    Finally got an R on a full from SH from a submission 6-1-12 of last year. I nudged them in April of this year and finally got an answer. They were swamped and dealing with a maternity leave. I dunno, that's a long time.

    Three books published now, from two authors - but nothing since 2011. Two books appear to be the owner's (one written, one edited), and the third a teenager's. Website geared toward authors, not readers (you have to hunt to find a list of books). Appears to be a self-publisher trying to expand.

    Most of their books are anthologies of student writing: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?un...&sort=daterank

    ETA: Of which there's been none (nor any other) since '13. (And site hasn't been updated since '11.)
