In a moment of Wright-esque self-publicity, I'll just post this:

As that was appearing on the screen, there was a bad 'big spider moment'.
However, brilliant to see it at last :D
Next, we need that background cathedral skyline of Lincoln....:wink:

So this was a while ago, then. Who remembers my one and only publishing 'success'? None of you, obviously; I'd even started to forget it myself.

Thirteen Mag seems to have vanished. The tale I heard, after trying to submit another story, was that they'd had a flood and things were too difficult to resurrect, or something. Whatever. Anyway, it was a little boost at the time and represented the only quantifiable success I'd had with my writing.

Fast forward to Dragon's Den last night and a chap who appears in a zombie mask trying to sell the panel his self-published horror short story tomes.

He hands the panel the book and I clock the old Thirteen logo on each one. A little googling later and it's this. Scroll down and you'll see me there (Hum, page 221).

How do I feel about that? Happy I'm out there, or miffed that my silly little missive is now being hawked around like soiled goods? If I'd received an email (I have his from 2005, after all) to say it was "going in a compendium, you won't get paid, but hey, it's GOING IN A COMPENDIUM", would I feel any happier? Yes, probably.

Thoughts?

It seems a bit presumptuous on his part, although my understanding (coming from a less published pov than yourself, mind) is that a typical detail of magazine contracts is that they buy territorial rights for a set period plus any future anthology reprint. If you sold it for free in the first place, likely they don't have to pay for the reprint either. Or at least I imagine that's what he would say. Was there a contract attached to that email?

I would contact the guy all friendly, congratulate him on his televised moment in the sun, then say that you would appreciate he notify you in print that all rights to the text now revert back to you. Nothing to compromise his compendium or anything, but I've seen magazine submission pages that don't rule out previously published material and maybe you want to give it another whirl.
