COMMENTS

Paul M. Jane observed in an email message to N. J. A. Sloane on Jan 10 2016 that the expression (n-1)!^(n-3) / Product_{k=1..n-2} k!^2 appears to be an integer if and only if n is a prime. That expression can be simplified to give Product_{k=1..n-1} k^(2k-n-1), and the result then follows from Vandendriessche and Lee, Problem A13 (compare A182484, which gives the values at the primes).
