OK, and thanks. Those were just examples (I could probably find others, but it doesn't seem possible to get a full listing of the offline works like it is in the online library, other than scraping the site).

If I had to choose, then some of Wells' short stories (please!), since not many are translated into danish, and my old paperbased volume in english contains only about half his production - "The Thing in No. 7", anyone?

Van Dine is strange, but in the US, you can prolong the copyright beyond death+70, right? - Over here, it's death+70, and no prolonging, ever, no matter if you being Disney or the king of Norway. But I've found 12 of his novels at canadian-based "faded pages", and that should keep me happy for a couple of months, since they're legal to me as a EU-citizen.

Which only serves to prove, that the people making copyright laws hasn't discovered this little thing called the internet …
