- On demand print publication from Lulu.
Might be a good place to go if you want to self-publish something. At least one person has used this service and appears pleased with it. Swaroop has used Lulu to publish: A Byte of Python, he also mentions PediaPress and some difficulty using Amazon's CreateSpace to do the same thing. Looks like Lulu is going to the DRM dogs and raising fees. One user of the Lulu service writes about his experience using it to self-publish a book on physics.
