PVish said:One web site (http://www.kazor.com/businessPR/Pandora's%20Game.htm), discussing a book to be released by fine Line in 2001, gives this info:
Julianna* Smith* Publisher*
Fine Line Publishing Co. Inc.*
*P.O. Box 502*
Vinton Va : 24179*
However the website isn't for a publisher. And they're not in the 2005 Roanoke Phone Book. The 703 area code changed to 540 several years ago. Googling the phone number produced nothing.
Googling, however, produced this:
Apparently they've done two books in 2001 by Christopher Andrews—"Pandora's Game is scheduled to be released September 5, 2001 by Fine Line Publishing Co. Inc. Dream Parlor has a current release date of September 10, 2001. Both novels will also be available at the official Fine Line website at www. Fine-LinePC.com by phone, fax, website or email and will be available at many online bookstores, including Amazon.com and BN.com. It will also be available in bookstores around the United States and Canada. The author will be holding signings at bookstores in California into the year 2002."
At http://www.denisemclark.com/scifirevdatapg3.html, the following books get very good reviews:
By Christopher Andrews
A Fine Line Book – 2002
Dream Catcher II:
By Julianne Smith
Fine Line Publishing Co. – 2001
On the same page are a couple of reviews for PublishAmerica books and a couple for Tor books, as well as a few others.
It appears that Fine Line is/was a science ficition publisher. Although I'm from the area, I've never heard of it, though.
