I would also love to see Kenneth Roberts' historical novels here as epubs.

I've seen a few of his pre-1923 essays, but none of his historical novels. Am I missing some technicality of copyright law that is keeping these works out of Canadian PD?

Unlikely. It is not PD in the US, and while now PD in Canada, there has been a lot of infighting behind the scenes over producing US books that have gone PD in Canada, even if done by Canadian citizens...

Hmmm, this question interests me strangely ...
Ralph Sir Edward, can you provide any details of said infighting? a link?

I ask because I wanted to convert and upload some Thurber pieces, including "Mitty", (if I ever finish my current endless project), and PM'ed HarryT whether they were safe to upload (I had done some checking, and the heirs have been duly diligent about renewing U.S. copyright on almost every Thurber work). His view was that it should be ok to upload them.

Now I'm nervous again. More information would be highly appreciated.

Grannygrump, please PM George H, who did the Lester Dent Doc Savages. And look at the notes on the #55 Doc Savage adventure.

Note: George H's Dashiell Hammets were taken down by Alex, for example...

Does that mean they became public domain in 2007?

Only in countries with Life + 50 copyright duration. It would still be under copyright elsewhere...

No, on 1st Jan 2008, but (as has already been said) only in countries like Canada which have a life+50 copyright term.

Ken Roberts is a Canadian children's author. Kenneth Roberts is an American historical fiction/non-fiction author specializing in the American Revolution and for whatever reason still not availalbe in ebook.

Kenneth Roberts's book Arundel is now available for sale at all the usual outlets. I emailed the publisher (Down East Books) to ask if his other books will soon be available too.

NOTE: Just heard back from Down East Books. They do not have the rights to all of KR's books, so they don't know what other ebooks they will be releasing other than Arundel.

I'd very much like to see a decent English translation of this

but translations?
