Is this in effect the Google of publishing? This no-obligation print-on-demand web-based publisher has taken the world by storm and pretty much cut the industry clean down the middle. There is the reaonable argument against Lulu that it lacks any sort of filtering process, that there are already more than enough bad books being published. But the counter argument would be, well yes, there are a lot of bad books being published already and not enough good ones, so who's fault is that? Some people see a crime on every street corner, others a sweet kid with a glint in his eye. If anyone out there has published or purchased books through I'd be interested to hear from them. In fact, I'd very much like to start a regular review of poetry works published through Lulu. So if anyone has one available, feel free to let me know.
