Intrigued by the difficulty, I, too searched--neither Amazon nor B & N allowed a peek at the copyright page, but I found something interesting at the LC catalog site. You're right, Sarah, about the recording--but a little further down on the list was Lord of the Slient. I checked that one, and it was the right book, Lord of the SIlent--just mis-spelled in the list that comes when we put in a search. And, as you say, it lists the claimant as MPM Manor, Inc. Maybe Elizabeth Peters, since she apparently writes under so many names, has incorporated herself and thus the corporation holds the copyright. E, you can add my note to Sarah's when you write to Gustavo. Cindy -- Sarah Van Oosterwijck <curiousentity@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Grrr. I am so sick of copyright questions.
