Is anyone familiar with Odyssey Books? Someone was asking about it, but there was no thread here that I could find. It is a self-publishing company, but I don't know if it's a respectable-ish one or not:
http://odysseybooks.com.au/

From what I could tell on the site, there is no fee for publishing with them, but there are fees for other services (editing, ISBN, etc.). They also don't list many books on their site -- from what I can see, one title and a couple of forthcoming titles.

Well, if nothing else, they're a league ahead of most start-ups on the design front. (Inside look at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Operation-Trooplift-Postcards-Heather-Sadler/dp/0646486934).) But, as always, only time will tell if they have the business savvy to survive as a publisher; custom or not.

I like the cover on the book on the home page, too. Way ahead of what some other publishers offer. I just hope they know how to sell the books. :)

Well, they've been accepted in SPUNC, which is the Small Press Underground Networking Community. Most of our small and independent publishers belong to this.

Here's the link for SPUNC so you can check it out more. I haven't heard of any misdealings. Most of them have grants from our Federal government Culture and Arts programmes to help them start up.

I've just started looking back home here and like some I've seen.

It looks this thread hasn't gotten much traction, so I'm just contributing that I recently sent to them after narrowing my list down to just a couple small publishers...
