I wouldn't think of the latter as being vanity publishing (it has lots of legitimate uses), but Steve seems happy to describe what he has done as being VP.

According to the Wikipdedia page of Xlbris, the service that Steve used, its status as a vanity press is a bit ambiguous. I actually now remember reading the Harper's article on Xlibirs that is mentioned in Wiki.

As the Curmudgeon notes, Steve is in good company as a self-published genius. :rofl:
