Preditors and Editors

I was surprised to read that P&E are shutting up shop until a new Caretaker is appointed, the owners having decided that the site needs revision. The job description sounds daunting but I hope a fully-qualified person will soon be found. In the meantime, how do we check credentials of publishers? Is "Writer Beware" still active?

Googling the publisher by name might produce some useful results.

You're right, Oldtimer. Might be difficult to find someone who has those skills and experience and who is also willing to invest that amount of time. Thanks for calling my attention to P&E and Writer Beware. I've book marked both sites. My early experience with editors/publishers was a bit like the old saying, "You pays your money and takes your chances." Since then, my first question is, "Do I have to send money along with my manuscript to get it read?"
