The Great Simon and Schuster Rights Grab
Toni Weisskopf responded to a barfly's question about whether the new contract Simon and Schuster is issuing has an effect on Baen (which is distributed by S&S).

Here's the Authors' Guild information on the new contract, which asserts rights in perpetuity regardless of whether the work is in or out of print.

Toni responded, "No, it won't. We have minimum activity level requirements that cover print and ebooks."

Once again, Baen shows they understand how to treat writers well.

How sad.

He was and still is one of my favorite authors. I first got into fantasy with the pyrdian novels.

Will we ever find out what a gurgi is. (own personal theory a small wild man of the woods, that is crossed with a ground sloth.)
