I am a barrister in England with an interest in various issues relating to reports of UFOs and have written various items online about such issues, including the following:
Looking on Amazon, it seems that your book (_insert title_) is no longer in print. Also, it also does not appear to currently be available online.
Do you have any plans to have your book republished?
If not, have you considered making a scanned copy available on the Internet (whether on my own website or simply via an independent free file storage website such as Minus.com or Box.com).
Provided that (as I presume is the case) you are the copyright holder, if you gave your permission then I would be happy to sort out getting your book scanned (if I do not have a scan of it already) and make it available online as a free download.
This would not involve any effort on your part. I would be happy to do the work involved. Just let me know what you think.
(If you are concerned that your publishers may have some relevant rights, I would – with your permission of course – be happy to email them directly about the possibility of making your book available online. I have previously done this, e.g. in relation to a book by Richard Haines of NARCAP, and received a positive response from the publisher within a matter of hours).
I think a number of people would be interested in reading your book, (particularly given ….. --- _insert brief reasons in relation to the specific book_),
Dr Richard Haines, the editor of the out-of-print book "UFO Phenomena and the Behavioral Scientist" (published by Scarecrow Press in 1979 with the ISBN number of 0-8108-1228-2), has kindly indicated to me that he would be delighted if I could upload that book to the Internet to make it available to all.
The book has been out of print for a fairly long period and presumably there are no plans to republish it on a commercial basis. However, that book examined issues regarding UFOs which continue to be discussed online. Making that book available online would make a contribution to the debate and possibly help reduce the amount of nonsense that is written online about UFO sightings.
I am not sure whether your company continues to have any rights in relation to that book but thought I should ask if Scarecrow Press (which I understand is an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield) will agree that any rights in relation to that book now revert to Dr Haines so that I can (with his permission) upload his book online (free of charge). Your assistance with this matter would be appreciated.
Dr Haines has told me that if Scarecrow Press has any need of his approval for me to do upload his book, you can contact him by email at (_removed_)
Just as a matter of courtesy, I will give my standard brief introduction : I am a barrister in England with an interest in various issues relating to "UFOs". I've previously helped make freely available online in a searchable format UFO documents from the FBI, from Canada (with the permission of the Canadian government) and Australia (with the permission of the Australian government) and New Zealand, plus helped make freely available in a searchable PDF format various out-of-print UFO publications (such as the newsletters of ufo skeptic Phil Klass, after getting relevant permissions). Here are a few links to samples of my previous items online:
