I will say the bad point first, you must have special tools to work them and able to merge pdfs before you upload and they don't give you the ISBN until after you're published. That's the only bad point but if you have the tools to work with and the ability to seamlessly design a book with LibreOffice.org then go for it, they come in handy for the experienced using these websites and the ability to handle a pdf upload to arrange a 208 page volume.

The Book Patch and Blurb.com share duties with hosting a historic release from Booksurge/Lulu.com. The earlier of the two as they are a younger base, they're handier with your 208 page publications but try to stay within 6 x 9 so you make your money. Practice a bit before you ultimately upload here, study releases already on the site so you can get a gist for what you're doing. If you have Docupub.com then go for it, if you don't have a way to merge pdfs I don't suggest it unless you're experienced. They have a print system for Bookwrite, but working on anthologies you have to work with another program to effectively arrange them.

In summary, I would recommend Blurb.com to a friend.
