    Yardbird Books

    I'm wondering because I'm interested in a controversial book they have published, The Midnight Ride of Jonathan Luna. Apparently, there have even been attacks to ban the book, which is nonfiction about a case involving the mysterious death of a federal prosecutor. (I'm listening to a radio interview with the author now.) But I want to make sure they're legit before spending my money. And if the story is right, I might have to buy it quickly while I still can.

    Anne,
    They look ok to me.. www.yardbird.com is the site. They've apparently been in business since 1988 and have a decent catalog but not overly extensive. Their submissions page says to query first - usually scammers want the ms. right away. Books are reasonably priced.

    I would say yes.

    Anne their books are in a lot of libraries; I checked locally, on campus and in World Cat, and found them in all three places.

    Thanks all!


    Now I definitely want that book. For one thing, I feel embarrassed for believing some of the information that was in the media about that case!

    They still have their submissions page up. Wonder why if they ceased publishing?
