    Prydain Publishing

    Has anyone heard of these guys? They've recently followed me on Twitter, but I can't find a website anywhere ...

    Wonder if they bought/leased the rights to use the name created by Lloyd Alexander.

    (I loved those books as a kid.)

    "Prydain" is the medieval Welsh name for Britain, so no licensing needed.

    I have happy warm feelings about the company name thanks to the association with Lloyd Alexander's books. But all I've found on them is a twitter feed documenting following/unfollowing stats and posting quotes.

    It's rather bot-like behavior.

    Yes, I noticed that. It's pretty vague, really ...

    M'kay ... first put up a blog (https://prydainpublishing.wordpress.com/), then briefly had a website that's gone now, but Wayback reveals this is/was an editing service. Here's its LinkedIn, for good measure.
