Well, let's hope "The mysterious island" by Verne does not win. It's the only Verne story I've read - would like to read another

Dear Ea, this is not a question of hope. Either you make an enchanting with all the runes at the right place or we have to rally a bunch of braves, a posse, to revert that landslide.

The copyright for the 1932 edition expired 2008, september 29th.
I checked it at the US copyright office before giving a nomination...

There are version with commentaires and tomes including the "Revisited" which are in copyright.
But the first one, AFAIK, is public domain.

BTW if someone knows a better way to check copyright status is welcome.

But I'm afraid they're making it difficult to find wether works are in PD on purpose...

I just voted and noticed something different. Before I voted, there were full details on who voted for what. After I voted, I couldn't see that. Is there a way to see who voted for what?

P.S.

I voted for Little Dorrit. The poor thing had zero votes.

This might be a topic for another thread, but the link I gave earlier here shows that that copyright for the 1932 edition was renewed in 1959, meaning it's still in copyright until 2027 in the US.

As you said, though, it's difficult to determine definitively, so I could very well be wrong about that.

Good question. I'm curious myself.

BTW, I voted for The Odyssey. Go Odyssey! Only 25 more votes needed to win!

I'm not sure... but the current voting trend seems a mandate for ole Mr. Verne.

Thank you, John... I felt really bad, when I saw yesterday Little Dorrit had no votes, and I nominated it, and then voted for Frankenstein..

Not so quick, you two. The Odyssey is only 26 votes shy of a win! Besides, I never got an answer on my question of whether it's OK to do a write-in for all six volumes of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire!
