Forward it along when you get it, if you don't mind. Oddly enough, I've had reason to contact themself, and didn't get NEARLY so quick an answer. :-P

Do you have a live speech or something you want to make available? Because if you're more interested in audiobooks, I can tell you that Americana AudioBooks atleast OWNED the rights to the audio versions (read by the author).

yeah, no, we're not in the area of audiobooks. I'm president of the Science Fiction Oral History Association and we have a GOH speech and other material with him on it in the archives. I just got a request from someone for a listen, which boosted me to get off my butt and contact his estate to make sure no one will yelp if we circulate them (and to see if we can put them up on the web and use them for other purposes as well).

Sounds like a nice bit.
Good luck with his estate.

Doesn't SFOHA get some kind of signed agreement when you tape stuff? If not, you should start.

I can see how it gets complicated.

Well, any recordings made before 1979 are likely good to go unless it's a recording of someone reading their written work. (Before that date, they would have had to register the recording for it to be copyrighted.) So you don't need to worry about the older stuff even if you can't find paperwork associated with it.

Beyond that, it's an interesting question. Do any of the cons have language about panelists understanding that panels may be recorded?

I believe it's his ex-wife and/or son. (If Jane were actually in charge, those extra Amber books would not have been written.)

True. Jane will know how to contact them, though.

I've never read them, actually. I refuse. It's well known in the SF&F writing community that he did not want anyone else publishing Amber novels after he died (aside from things like Phage Press which has the right to publish fanfic in Amberzine), but he didn't change his will so there you go.

I opened the first one, read the first chapter or so... and would have thrown the bloody thing against the wall if A) I wasn't in a bookstore and B) it was my book.

I've heard they're terribly standard-fantasy and really lame to boot.

I haven't read them either, after a conversation with George R. R. Martin where he explained Zelazny's views on the subject.

Jesus Christ, people, don't operate on rumor. The Pimlico Agency. Kay McCauley. 212-628-9729. It's not a secret.
