To answer the original poster's question, in the UK at least, a posthumous work has copyright protection for 50 years from the end of the year of its initial publication. The date of the author's death is not relevent in this circumstance. Eg, if I were to discover a previously-unknown letter written by, say, Charles Dickens, and publish it today, it would enter the public domain on 1st Jan 2060.
