As you may have heard the BBC is in the process of selling h2g2, and there is a group of Researchers that has been organizing to either buy h2g2 or (preferably) give support to whoever does buy h2g2. A lot of work has gone into (and is currently ongoing) organizing several things, one of which is bringing h2g2 to the attention of possible writers and readers.
I've volunteered to contact folks to ask for permission to reproduce their work. While the BBC has permission to use anything on h2g2 as they see fit, copyright on your work rests fully with you. In order for anyone that's not the BBC to reproduce anything of yours, that person needs your permission. We've decided that includes subbing.
Permission for what? Edited Entries, UnderGuide Entries, Post articles, and other items (illustrations, etc.) that represent the best of h2g2 are being gathered with an eye towards publishing them in book form. Phred's and Leo's Entry on DB Cooper ( A24145490 ), which you subbed, made the short list. Whatever you decide is what will be abided by--whether you say "No," "Yes, but just this work," or want to give blanket permission for any work that may be recommended (we're considering doing future volumes). Either way, thank you for your time and consideration
