No, all publishers aren’t lowering their standards or dumbing-down their books. But it sometimes looks that way when you visit the front tables at bookstores.
Tomorrow One-Minute Book Reviews begins a series on great small or independent presses that have had high standards for years or even decades. In addition to its usual reviews, this blog will have a profile of a different publisher each day this week and a link to its site, which may help with your holiday shopping. After this week, the Great Small Presses series will continue on an occasional basis.
