It wasn't specifically provided for in that contract, so they had no right to do it. That was the gist of our case and the German publisher, after a bit of huffing, backed down. As I recall, I kept my share of the advance; and the pulping cost them a lot of money, so they wouldn't have given in if they weren't in the wrong.

What annoyed me, besides the interruption of the narrative, was the inevitable impression that I had been paid in respect of the ad.
