They apparently existed in the late 70’s and early 80’s.  They were 
apparently located in Beaverton, Oregon in the same business park, on 
Nimbus, where Norvac Electronics was.  They obviously published some 
very strange computer books, including what looks to be a teen romance. 
I find myself with an embarrassingly nice little collection of the 
books, that my Dad apparently had.  Considering I think he touched a 
computer twice in his life, they’re something of a mystery.

Cool question!  I remember them as a publisher of computer books back in 
the day.  Never realized they were local (I live about a block from 
there now!).

Apparently a large line of children's classics, too.

I may not have any of their stuff, though.  Their heyday seems have 
overlapped my "poor college student" phase, rather than my book 
acquisition phase.


I miss the OMSI of old.
