It seems to me that e-publishers close in one of two ways, snark or boojum. Snark is the online equivalent of a grenade that goes off distributing blame, acrimony and badly spelled rants in all directions. And boojum? Well, I think Lewis Carroll put it best:
If your Snark be a Boojum! For then
You will softly and suddenly vanish away,
And never be met with again!'
So: Boojum [n] an epublisher that softly and suddenly vanishes away. e.g. Ocean's Mist. (or was that one a stealth snark that just stayed off fully public forums?)
The latest vanishing acts seem to be Tree Press? Any ideas what happened there?
