Peter Lang

Why do people publish in Peter Lang, nowadays? It used not to be for any good reason. But I keep seeing people do it — with books I think could be published in non-vanity venues. Is something happening?

Axé.

    I don’t hear anything nowadays about Peter Lang, or Edwin Mellen Press, for that matter. But you might find this interesting, even though it’s from eight years ago.

      Yeah. Lang books have never been all bad. It’s just that one was always advised not to publish with them because it doesn’t look right. And I then wonder — what is going *on* — I know for some it’s just a question of getting the mss. off their desk, an act of cleansing and archiving, but then I see books that in my estimation really could have gone somewhere with a more solid reputation…
