Stephen Tukel and Joshua Horwitz, environmental publishers, weren't upset when they saw the unprecedented deluge of eco-books pouring off the nation's presses last spring for Earth Day '90. They weren't worried about the competition, even though their own books were still waiting in the wings. "Our feeling was the more books the better," Tukel said. "We're doing something different. We're in it for the long haul."
