    American Literary Press

    Not a "beware" so much as to add them to our lists, since one of their imprints is often confused with spammer Noble House Publishing. And they're perhaps relevant to the various Five Star discussions.

    http://www.americanliterarypress.com/

    Imprints:

    "ALP" - plain vanilla vanity POD.
    "ALP-PDQ" - new & improved "Popular Demand Quantity" POD.
    "Heritage Special Edition" - for biographies, memoirs, etc.
    "Five Star Special Editions" - POD with promotional package.
    "Shooting Star" - for children's books.
    "Noble House" - hardcovers.

    What, no giggling over "PDQ"? Gaah, I'm so disappointed.

    PDQ is just their way of getting around the dread initials POD, since so many new writers are learning that POD means DOA.

    Has changed owners and websites: http://www.my-new-publisher.com/

    ETA: Looks to have dropped the imprints, and not published anything since the change (early '10).
