From Clifford Hickey:
Richard Brautigan’s 1966 novel The Abortion features a library especially for unpublished books. Authors could simply bring in copies of their manuscripts, and people could visit and read them.
The library valued the works, not the money publishing could generate.
These days, authors can publish their own books economically using print on demand or ebook technology. Still, a publisher who edits, designs, and in other ways takes pride in a work can honor its authors, save them time they could devote to writing, and help make their work visible to readers.
