And I don't believe it's in the public domain, so there is no legal way to provide an ebook version here.

You can get "Reason and Imagination in C. S. Lewis: A Study of Till We Have Faces." by Professor Peter J. Schakel of Hope College. Professor Schakel was kind enough to provide permission to convert it and another study of Lewis, "Reading with the Heart: The Way into Narnia", into various ebook formats and provide them for download on MobileRead.

A Mobipocket version of Reason is here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...=Peter+Schakel

And you won't find it here for a few years. C.S. Lewis died in 1963, which means his works are under copyright in pretty much every country. In 2014, if the laws have not changed, they'll be public domain in Canada, and then it would be legal for MobileRead to host them.

I'd love to see more noir thrillers in the MR library. Specifically...

CLIFTON ADAMS (d. 1971):
* The Dangerous Days of Kiowa Jones
* A Partnership with Death


Horace McCoy (d.1955)
* Kiss Tomorrow Good-Bye

Doreen,

If you want to see more of something, the best way to achieve that is to add it yourself. It would be really nice if more people were to contribute books to our library.

As far as your requests go, you know as well as I do that books by an author who died in 1971 are unlikely to be in the public domain .

Actually there are a few Clifton Adams in the library already.

I do know the best way is to contribute them myself, but unfortunately I have a family crisis that's taking up much of my time. I did think this was the thread for requests and begging -- something about the title would indicate that -- but maybe I missed something there.

You did correctly, doreenjoy. There are many reasons to ask for further books, not all of them can be traced down to laziness

Mister Adams was most active in the 20s and 30s, thus making his texts available under these strange copyright laws of the US.

And for US residents it won't hit public domain until 2052.

I am grateful for all the hard work the contributors put into the library.

Unfortunately, for US residents current copyright laws prevent us from adding anything published after 1922.

Not entirely true--anything through 1963 that wasn't renewed is eligible, and some things published later than that didn't have the right kind of copyright notice & therefore are in the public domain. (Almost nothing that's actually books is in this category; it includes things like newsletters, fanzines, and various amateur publications.)

Pre-1922 is *definitely* in the public domain in the US; between 1923 and 1963 is maybe (but if it's well-known today, that's probably because it was renewed); post-1963 is PD only by bureaucratic glitch or author's intentional release.

And there are Creative Commons/open source texts that could be reformatted for MR readers; a lot of those are released by the author/publisher in PDF format and need reworking to be easily readable on most devices.

You're correct, of course. However, it is difficult to ascertain whether copyright was renewed. Although for MR purposes it is not important as it needs to be public domain in Canada only.
I was commenting that it is harder for US residents to add to the list when we are mostly restricted to pre-1923. And much is already available on MR.

Starting Jan 1st published works of pre-1961 deceased authors enter Canada's public domain. They have much more available to them and can legally upload to MR.

It is important for MR because MR has a server in the US for just this purpose of having US public domain books that are not public domain in Canada. If you upload one of them please request a moderator to move it to the US server.

Thank you for correcting my error. I was unaware MR had a server in the US. I must not have run across a US only PD material.

Although, there is so much more available for Canadians than US residents. Starting 2012 all Hemingway's writings will be PD in Canada.

But we are still waiting for most of Poe's work, for instance (particularly in ePUB format)
