With NewPages Casey Hill, freelance advocate of the alternative press, provides an important tool... NewPages provides links to news, information, and guides to independent bookstores, independent publishers, literary periodicals, alternative periodicals, independent record labels, and alternative newsweeklies... The site looks clean, with a few tasteful graphics and text that load quickly. Clear categories make navigation simple. Links are almost universally fresh...

A great starting point for anyone interested in publishing, bookstores, libraries, and alternative culture; recommended for all libraries”
