So coming up to 2 years since a Gently release ?

I feel your pain. Eventually it gets to the point where you just hope that you can outlive the duration of the copyright (or just throw in the towel and get it by other means).

OK so I finally got onto someone at Hatchette Australia who contacted someone at Constable UK. The publisher has no plans to release the remaining books as eBooks and the rights have reverted back to the family.

Heaven forbid we should revert to archaic practices and buy a tangible printed book!

Oh, I already have printed versions of most of the books that I want, or once had a printed version, my mother gave away a lot of the old children's series like the Hardy Boys and Three Investigator books. I do keep my eye out for some old favorites, (bought the Encyclopedia Brown eBooks when they came out), thus the backlist thread and books you had given up on thread that I started.

I will admit that some of that was simply gentle teasing of HarryT who is much more of a straight arrow than I am with regards to such things. While I may not pirate, I can see how many might do so with regards to orphaned works.
