Thanks, Matthias

The online newspapers in Australia bristle with short stories and serial novels, and I've rescued quite a lot, specially some still in copyright.

I have around 100 short short crime stories by Australian Vince Kelly, a NSW police and political newspaper reporter, but he left no obvious heirs and I don't know how to find the copyright owner. So they sit on my hard drive until I do.

I did find the owner of the copyright of a bunch of short stories by Australian writer R Carson Gold, and sent them on. Maybe one day they'll appear in properly authorised print.

As to all the others, well, I am in the rescue business I suppose, so when I find these PD stories in newspapers I just assemble them into a book-length epub and put them up here.

There's many thousands more, and an astounding number of them are anonymous, so of course I can't post them here; or are by authors who are (a) unknown to Google, or (b) pseudonymous and unknown to Google, with the same result. The Braidwood NSW newspaper for many years ran novelettes as short two or three part serials, and every one is anonymous.

I now have 6 true-crime stories by Ladbroke Black, by the way, which together make up only 17,000 words. The nucleus of Past Masters 11 perhaps. Or Roy Glashan's Library, or both.

I am not a lawyer, and I am not the owner of this site. But if I have any say, my interpretation is:

* Works by authors for which no reliable information can be found, or by pseudonyms for which the real person behind is unknown (which is arguably the same thing) are as good as anonymous.

* Copyright for anonymous works (including the above) typically expires x years after publication. The value of x may change across countries.

* If the identity or death date of the author becomes known, the copyright status of the work may change accordingly.

For the purposes of "allowing" works in the MR library, I consider publication date + 70 years (i.e., as if the author died the year it was published). Even if there are later works published under the same name, since there is no data, there is also no evidence it is the same person, or it isn't a pseudonym.

Thanks, Jellby. I hadn't given thought to the anonymous works copyright rules. I was cautious because I thought that possibly it was just the rural newspaper chains' practice not to give authors' names on syndicated stories.

I'll have another look at those that were published anonymously in newspapers before 1950. I didn't even bother to read them; no name, no interest to me.
