Dorchester Publishing closed earlier this year and sold 1,000 titles to Amazon. Now the publisher is working to transfer rights back to its authors, but they have a long list of writers that they cannot contact.
Click here to see the list of authors Dorchester hopes to contact. If you know any of these authors, help them connect with Dorchester and complete the revision process. Oddly enough, the list includes a few authors who have passed away, including Louis L’Amour, Robert Louis Stevenson and H.P. Lovecraft.
Check it out: “Thank you for your support over the last 75 years. At this time, we are completing the reversion process, transferring all titles back to their respective authors. Though we have made great strides, our research has uncovered a number of authors for whom we have no contact information. In addition, there are a number of titles without corresponding authors. To complete this reversion process, we will need your help.” (Via Stacia Kane & Sarah Weinman)
