    Adventure author Clive Cussler told me that when he wrote 'Night Probe!' in 1981, he wanted to use a character - whom he called "Brian Shaw" - who was clearly supposed to be James Bond, and the Ian Fleming estate offered to let him use the Bond name - for $50,000. Cussler passed. Didn't hurt the story a bit.

    I hope we will see a big impact from this release of books, articles, photos, and art.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Hundreds of thousands of books, articles, photographs, and other works will all become public domain in less than two weeks. I am always looking for new images to use in my blogs. I use quotes in my books. This will give me more options where I do not have to seek a copyright holder's permission.

    I have committed to publishing two books in 2019. This new material may inspire me to write more.
    I had to change the cover of one of my books. I was lucky that the illustrator was a nice woman. She didn't try try sue me. Lesson learned.

    Wow, you know Clive Cussler? Cool, I've read a lot of his stuff.

    Night Probe was the first Clive Cussler book I read...I've read many more, since.

    I had no idea I was on a board among (old school) published authors beyond the clue that the writing on this board is generally very good.

    How about some links?

    Copyright it folks -- $35.00
    Has electronic communications like the internet changed the veracity of the copyright office?
