PD labyrinth and WE trivia
Public domain nightmare
PD rules at the international level are extremely complex. Even big corps make mistakes. So I will delete texts and put Gutenberg links instead, along with a few lines (not necessarily full-fledged reviews, we'll see).
Alfred Bester and the Green Lantern oath
Stumbled on this. Pretty surprised, although Bester denied it years later during an interview.
Bester wrote The stars, my destination, a visionnary masterpiece from 1956 (it could be released this month, it wouldn't shock anyone). The book is jam-packed with ideas, highly recommend it.
