How many times have I tested this system? I think that about five pieces of my 'art' have been published in a 'beautiful coffee table' edition. The hilarious titles of the books make me question their validity; I believe one that something of mine was published in was called A Fleeting Shadow . Semi-finalist means nothing other than the fact that it gives the company a way to attempt to convince you to buy this 'wonderful' book that your award-winning poem (which you see no proof of) has been published. In other words, it's a crock.
