I have read enough of Catja's posts over the years to grab the salt shaker as soon as I saw the title.  What's surprising is that it was published by a university (granted a university known mostly for it's medical school but a university nonetheless).

Johns Hopkins is considered a great press for literary studies, as well -- the two top American academic children's lit journals are published out of there.  Every university press has its own areas of specialization and expertise, which may or may not overlap with what that university is famous for -- while presses attached to top-tier universities (like JH) are generally considered very good, they may not necessarily be the best in that given field.  Like, Yale UP looks good to a layperson, but for fairy tale studies, Wayne State UP is top-tier -- the top fairy tale journal Marvels and Tales is housed there, which bumps its prestige WAY up. That kind of information can be hard to get, though, unless you're actually in academia.  Smiley
