Notes On Lester Dent, Doc Savage, and Life + 50 copyright

For those Doc Savage fans, (yes, I mean you, and you, and you), under life + 50 copyright law, those Doc Savages of Lester Dent go PD in said countries as of Jan 1, 2010, or about 7 weeks from this posting.

However, not all Doc's were written by Dent. So I am providing a list of those Doc's who will not go PD in Life + 50 countries, starting in 2010. It's easier to list those that won't that those that will.


Author and title.

Lester Dent (d. 1959) - The Red Spider (published posthumously in 1979, separate timer.)

Evelyn Coulson (????) - The Yellow Cloud

Ryerson Johnson (d. 1995) - The Land of Always Night
Ryerson Johnson (d. 1995) - The Fantastic Island
Ryerson Johnson (d. 1995) - The Motion Menace

Alan Hathaway - (d. 1977) - The Devil's Playground
Alan Hathaway - (d. 1977) - The Headless Men
Alan Hathaway - (d. 1977) - The Mindless monsters
Alan Hathaway - (d. 1977) - The Rustling Death

William G. Bogart (d.1977) - The World's Fair Goblin
William G. Bogart (d.1977) - Hex
William G. Bogart (d.1977) - The Angry Ghost
William G. Bogart (d.1977) - The Spotted Men
William G. Bogart (d.1977) - The Flying Goblin
William G. Bogart (d.1977) - Tunnel Terror
William G. Bogart (d.1977) - The Awful Dynasty
William G. Bogart (d.1977) - Bequest of Evil
William G. Bogart (d.1977) - The Magic Forest
William G. Bogart (d.1977) - Fire and Ice
William G. Bogart (d.1977) - Death in Little Houses
William G. Bogart (d.1977) - The Disappearnig Lady
William G. Bogart (d.1977) - Target For Death
William G. Bogart (d.1977) - The Death Lady


The rest wiil be PD in Life + 50 countries as of Jan 1, 2010, as follows.

Lester Dent (d.1959)
Laurence Donovan (d. 1950) - (already available at PG austrailia)
Harold A Davis (d. 1955)

These would compromise 159 stories...
