And again it's me! I was looking for something by H G Wells who died in August 1946 and should be in the death+70 public domain by my calculations, but he's nowhere to be found in the library. Could this be rectified please?
I would have a go at this myself, but don't know the first thing about formatting a book apart from running it through Calibre.
Your calculations are incorrect. Work enters the public domain at the beginning of the year following the 70th anniversary of the author's death. Wells died in 1946; his work will, therefore, enter the life+70 public domain on 1st Jan 2017.

Thanks, I didn't know that, I assumed it was the 70th anniversary of their death date. Oh well, just a few more months before it's formatted by the wonderful MR ... formatters.

Here neither. Just thought I'd ask, because it would be a waste of effort if several people were to work on the same thing.

Worth noting too that Delphi do a "Complete Works of H.G. Wells" collection, which we'll legally be able to buy in the U.K. in a few weeks. Their collections are generally pretty good.

Amazon?
https://www.amazon.com/Black-Sunday-.../dp/0451204158

It's likely available for sale from B&N and Kobo as well.

It's under copyright, so you won't find it as a free download here. Everything offered on MobileRead is explicitly in the public domain (which doesn't happen till author's death + 70 years in the US).

That's actually wrong.

Not everything here is public domain, some of the material is copyrighted, and posted by, or with permission from, the copyright holder.

And the death+70 term is valid in the EU and some other countries, but not in the US. In the US anything published before 1923 is public domain, and no new works are entering the public domain on a regular basis.

The USA is now on life+70 for works first published after 2002. For works published before that it's complicated, but nothing falls into the public domain until 1st January 2019, when works first published in 1923 all fall into the public domain. Each year after that will see another year of publications enter the public domain until 1st January 2073, when all works published in 1977 will fall into the public domain. In addition, on 1st January 2048, works first published between 1978 and 2002 inclusive whose author died before 1978 will all fall into the public domain.

From 2074 onwards, the USA will finally be on a simple life+70 copyright length.

I'm pretty sure there will be some change before that
