CreateSpace isn't so much a publisher as a service that allows self published authors the ability to print their works for a fraction of the cost of traditonal large scale printing methods.
The company was purchased by Amazon in 2005 and the current product range includes the ability to create CD's and DVD's along with the support of their sales platforms.
Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.
SFBook is entirely funded by Ant including hosting, development and any other costs.
If you enjoy the site please consider a small donation towards the cost of the upkeep and development of SFBook.
