What, no The First Mean in the Moon?


Seriously, thanks Harry. What method did you use for your ePubs? Mobi to ePub in Calibre or something else?



On a side note, because I figure Harry might know, what makes it that Wells work is copyrighted in the UK and the rest of the EU (plus a few other places) until 31 December 2016? Is that standard UK copyright law or something special?

Wells died in 1946. In the UK (& EU) his works are currently in copyright for 70 years after his death, and will come out of copyright on 1st January, 2017

In Canada, they came out of copyright on 1st January 1997.

There is only one special case in copyright law in the UK, and that's Peter Pan.

... and the "King James Bible", which is under perpetual "Crown Copyright".

He's right again....

But not quite! Having double-checked, I find that the 1988 act abolished the perpetual copyright and, under the fifty year transitional arrangements, the UK copyright on the King James Bible is now set to expire on 1st January 2040.

I mean that the 31st December 2039 is the last day that the book will be in copyright, and that from the first instant of 1st January 2040, it will be in the public domain.
