    Umm ... what's the question?

    Are you warning us about them? Asking if people here have had bad experiences dealing with David Mangus ?

    Sure, the 'Literary Bone' site seems to be almost unreadable - but I assume you have more than that to warn people about ?

    I think Swordgirl was just trying to make sure that every publisher, however small, had a thread here.

    Company owned by 20 year old male from Salt Lake.

    Don't mean to be an "ageist," but I'm not sure that I would feel confident doing business at a house owned by a 20 year old- No offense to 20 year olds.

    I saw them a few months ago and note that some good writers are featured, both old and new. But that website is easily one of the most atrocious I have ever, ever seen. Based on it I was very surprised at the good quality of the stories they have to offer.

    This post, however, is a classic small press matyrdom polka. (First verse: don't bother even trying to submit to the large press it's 900,000:1 against....)
