SPECIAL NOTE: Numerous infringing reproductions of various issues of Amazing Stories appeared in various places (Amazon, B&N, Facebook) over the past several weeks, including an edited version of the Wikipedia entry for the magazine. Using publishing names such as “Amazing Stories Library” and “Experimenter Publishing”, these companies made a serious effort to make it look as if they were related to our efforts here. Up till recently this kind of thing has been a relatively minor annoyance. This past month saw that rise to a higher level of annoyance. Take-downs and notices of infringement have been issued, received and honored by various and sundry, including B&N, Amazon, Ebay, Facebook, Zazzle, CafePress and more. Our licensees have been instructed to place additional notices of validity within the pages of their books and magazine reproductions. Several unsung individuals have and continue to send us possible examples of infringement (thank you!), which we welcome if you are so inclined.
Please note that at the present time, the ONLY licensed and authorized reproductions of Amazing Stories issues are being published by FuturesPastEditions.com. Any other reproductions, anthologies, collections and novels published under the Amazing Stories name are unauthorized, unlicensed, infringing product. (FPE has upped their publishing schedule and expects to be releasing one new title every 4 to 6 weeks for the foreseeable future.) Authorized publications are easily identified by the inclusion of the Registered Trademark symbol – ® – next to the name Amazing Stories.
The infringers typically hide their identity (an anonymous Facebook page, website registration by proxy, anonymous Wikipedia editing) and do not provide direct contact information within the pages of their publications – as one would expect from bottom feeders scraping the internet for product they can steal – so any information leading to the identification of the individuals responsible will receive a copy – their choice – of one of our authorized editions. For further information, email the editor.
