Public Domain Day 2013

Another New Year, so most of us can enjoy a whole range of new books entering the public domain. The majority of us, who live in countries with a "life+70" copyright law, now have books by authors who died during 1942 in the public domain (most notably, for English-speaking reader, the prolific author Ernest Bramah); people in countries with a "life+50" copyright law (such as Canada), can now freely enjoy the works of authors who died during 1962, such as William Faulkner, Hermann Hesse, and Howard Garis.

People in the United States, as usual, get nothing at all. Yet again, not one new work has entered the US public domain, and nor will any do so for many years to come.
