I am hoping that we are coming to a time when there will be no "Out Of Print" backlist
for Authors (not publishers) and that older works that would no longer rate a distribution
house's attention and support could be offered by the Authors at the equivalent to
today's $2.50. A simple reference at the end of current works to the author's web site
would be all the advertisement needed to support the author's works that are no longer
being supported by a publisher or distribution company.
Authors could be looking to adding such clauses to their contracts. It could be better
than an IRA plan.
