Atmosphere Press

Discussion started on

I am wondering if anyone has any experience with Atmosphere Press? They require the writer to fund the initial costs of publishing, which I've heard is a big red flag, but I'm curious if anyone has any actual experience or insight into them. Thoughts?

I have not had any experience with them. In fact, I have never heard of them. BUT, if they are asking you to pay anything at all, they are NOT a traditional publisher. They are either a "hybrid" press or a vanity press.
