Abducted to Oz: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10127

The Forest Monster of Oz: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10419

These two Oz books are on Project Gutenberg as "Copyrighted Books" but I think they might have been released into the Public Domain? They are released as "free eBooks" on PG by the authors in the same year as they were first published, I believe by a non-profit organization called "Tails of the Cowardly Lion and Friends".

If I understand it correctly, the only condition on these works is that a fee cannot be charged. So that would make them suitable for LV, since we don't charge for our books? It specifically says that derivative works/performance of the text is OK. I think!

The stumbling block is that we can not release books into the PD without any restrictions, if they were not PD in the first place.
And PG says they are not PD. And the author holds the copyright.
So no , we will not catalogue them.
