I'd like to reread Under the Volcano which I originally read back in the mid-808s. Author is Malcolm Lowry who wrote it in 1947. Don't know if that qualifies for public domain or not.

Can't find it in the Sony Store or any others.
It was renewed in 1974, so it's not in the public domain.

Had copyright been limited to the length of time it was copyrighted (and renewed) under, it would now be in the public domain. Feel free to offer curses in the direction of Sonny Bono's grave when you think about it.

Thank you very much for the suggestion but kokobooks gives exactly the same problem. They do not sell to Belgium.

Anne, in order to buy books from the Sony store, I understand you need either a US credit card or a Sony gift certificate. Members here can get gift certificates for you. Just post your request in the Sony forum or the Lounge.

I buy books for my Sony from Kobo which is based in Canada. Don't know if it would work but you might them. The link is http://www.kobobooks.com/

This forum isn't the place to discuss buying eBooks; could you take the conversation to the "Freebies, Deals, and Resources" forum, please? We need to keep this "sticky" thread on topic.

Thanks.

Dante's "Inferno" aka "Divine Comedy Hell" was posted in LRF format here and here. (it's a big book, I guess.) I've switched machines since installing LRFtools and my conversion to MOBI isn't currently working. Can anybody easily convert these to MOBI for my Kindle? Purty please?!?

Ah -- thanks. I looked in the index under "Dante" and didn't see it. Then I search for "Inferno" and didn't see it. A new search under "Divine Comedy" found it. Thanks for telling me! Now to see if I can stomach it ..... (I feel like I really ought to try it ... a little!)

Note that "Inferno" is only the first part of the Divine Comedy (though probably the most tasty one), there's Purgatory and Heaven too. And you could have searched for "Alighieri", Dante's surname

Yeah, right ..... like I knew THAT!

Actually, I went to "D" in the book index. A search might have gotten the result I wanted. The "D" index didn't, obviously.

Mr. Saramago is still alive. His books are, therefore, very much still protected by copyright, and you won't find them legally "for free".

Do you mean that you'd like the German original? The only English translation appears to be the one by Anthea Bell in 1999 for Penguin Classics, which obviously is still in copyright.

Damnation! I assumed that, having been written so long ago, it would be out of copyright. I hadn't taken into account the copyright on the translation. Never mind.

That's right - a translation has its own copyright, entirely independent of that of the original, so Anthea Bell's translation will be in copyright until 70 years after her death.
