    [Publisher] Persea Books

    Is it legitimate? It looks like it started in the 1970s and is a smaller, indie press. Has anyone dealt with them or heard anything?

    I've seen the site, but it doesn't speak to its legitimacy. SoHo press looks to be on the level, but P&E says it's getting bad feedback from clients. Does anyone know about this?

    Wow, Soho's getting bad now? That's surprising to hear, I always thought they were so good.

    Persea is a pretty respected small press--at least in terms of poetry (I can't say for the other genres). But as you can tell from that last statement, this is not a press that will be making you tons of money.
