I heard about doing "on demand" publishing about ten years ago, when it was being touted for colleges and universities and thought it would be wonderful for the rest of us. And then nothing.
Finally, we hear about a small book store in Manchester Center, VT, where "Lurch" is cranking out up to 35 books a bad for customers, including a number of local authors who might otherwise never been published. Our thanks to D C Denison for this article in The Boston Globe. The only thing missing in an otherwise great article is the cost of a cross-section of books that have been produced by "Lurch," whose real name is "Expresso Book Machine."
The future has a lot to offer us and it isn't all bad.
