Beaumont, TX–Lamar University Press calls itself a small university press, but a check of the books in print and those listed on the coming soon page reveals a more accurate description: busy university press. With the release of its next book, scheduled to be Kevin K. Casey’s novel Four-Peace, Lamar University Press will have published three novels, twenty-four books of poetry, and seven nonfiction books. From January through the end of April 2015, the press released ten books. In addition to the forty-plus books already published, the small press lists six books on its Coming Soon page. And according to press staff, there are another dozen books that have passed the selection process and in various stages of production. With this kind of impressive output for a small press, quality has not been compromised. Among the authors are many prize winners, including multiple past Texas poet laureates and one Canadian poet laureate.
