  1. My view is that the big advantage of cheap self publishing options is not to have each author attempt to become their own editor, graphic designer, marketing etc- it’s that small groups of people, with the appropriate skills, can use these options to build the equivalent of a publishing house.

    Especially since, it takes generations to push entrenched issues in established places, whereas, it just takes a lot, but not impossible, amount of work to do a fresh start with a group of like-minded folks.

    In my own sector of geekdom, rpgs, we’ve seen people consistently push 300-1000 copies a year, in a niche of a niche, so these things are not impossible or un-doable.
