May I ask, whether the books of Philip Dick are already on the public domain?
Some of his early work is now in the public domain, Gutenberg has the follwing:

Beyond Lies the Wub
Beyond the Door
The Crystal Crypt
The Defenders
The Eyes Have It
The Gun
Mr. Spaceship
Piper in the Woods
Second Variety
The Skull
The Variable Man

Whether any other are, I do not know.

True, but as they didn't specify which county they were in, I can't be too specific. I wasn't wrong in what I said, but I suppose I could have been more precise.

As to my own country - the UK - I cannot find any evidence that they are or conversely not in the public domain here. This is a non-issue for me as I own them anyway.

The author died in 1982, so they won't be in the public domain (with current legislation) until 2053. It's a non-issue to you as long as you don't redistribute or get additional copies of the works.

They are not in the UK public domain. Those particular stories are all stories which were published in American magazines, for which copyright was not renewed, during the time that US-copyright had to be renewed. They are only in the public domain in the US. Nowhere else.

Thanks guys for clearing that up.

I wasn't certain how his stories were in the public domain in the US seeing as they use Live+75 like here in the UK. I wasn't aware on the rules around magazines.

So long as Spinnenmonat is in the US, they are safe to download them.

And I had no plans to redistribute them as there was no evidence I could find that said I was safe to do this. I'll just keep them to myself and enjoy them.

Could it BE any more difficult?

Say you're in Canada (not public domain). You drive across the border to the US (in public domain). You download the stories -- perfectly legal, you're in the US and the stories are in the public domain. You drive home. Do you have to delete them?

I know. Not even an interesting logic puzzle. But seriously, things gotta change.

I have a request, if it's at all possible. The library here is spectacular, and I've noticed quite a few uploads which are compilations of all of a specific PD author's works. I've searched and found plenty of books by the Brontë sisters, but I was wondering if it's at all possible for somebody to take the time to compile their works into the one file?

A Google search for "Shelley Prometheus Unbound" should serve to answer that question.

Oh thank you doubleshuffle, I have downloaded your ebook and read some pages and I didn't come across that part.
