Time for some changes around here. I've been pretty remiss in not posting this past year. I'm afraid Facebook has been taking my energies and I find I've said much there to the detriment of here. This needs to change. So here's to that.
I have some ideas I want to work on for a novel. As I may or may not have mentioned before, I have a concept for a story that would serve as a prequel to the 1932 sci-fi classic "When Worlds Collide" by Edwin Balmer and Philip Wylie.
My story bears no resemblance to the two novels by the pair ("When"... and "After Worlds Collide"), but for me to invest the time and energy on such a venture...
I have some plotting to do and some research to conduct. The question in my mind is can a person write a book that supplement another work without legally stepping on someone's toes?
Both authors are long dead, but I need to find out if the rights to the book are owned by anyone, and if so... well, that is the perennial question... kind of like "to be or not to be."
