I'm sorry to have this as my first post to this list, but I'm afraid
I am not understanding why getting something printed/done up for a
small run for people within the SCA has turned into setting up a
small publishing company and all of its legalities etc? Is there
something inherently undesirable about using Lulu.com for printing,
distribution, ISBN, etc? It has really changed the print-on-demand
industry for people who just want to "put something out there"
without being a vanity press (no author contributions are required
towards printing costs, although you do have to pay for an ISBN and
any optional extra services you may desire).
I can see that if one *wants* to set up a small publishing house that
is one thing, but if this discussion arose as I think it did over the
ISBN issue there are certainly other ways around that...Lulu isn't
alone any more but it comes highly recommended by a number of people
I know including some who work in book publishing.
