The Ministry of Whimsy has launched a PUBLISHER/EDITOR ROUNDTABLE at www.mindspring.com/~toones/roundtable. The Ministry sent out ten questions to over a dozen influential independent presses and posted the answers in a roundtable format. Users can read all the responses to a single question or read one publisher/editor's entire interview. Questions tackle issues such as the survival of independent presses in a world of super book chains and mega-publishers. Publishers represented on the site include Four Walls Eight Windows, Cambrian Publications, Wordcraft of Oregon, and many more. Avant-pop author Lance Olsen and magazine publishers Chris Reed and David Pringle are contribute related articles. The Ministry plans to add interviews and articles in the coming months making the site a clearinghouse for discussion of issues vital to the viability of the independent press.
Publishers who would like to be represented should contact the Ministry at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Although the main set of interviews focus on book publishers, the Ministry will be expanding the site to include magazine publishers as well.)
