This really only applies to people with contracted stories orphaned in the Realms of Fantasy
shut down, but per an email I received from Sovereign / Homestead Publishing today, they have not yet determined the disposition of the story rights. Since our contracts are with Sovereign / Homestead Publishing and not with Realms of Fantasy
, and Sovereign is still in business, reversion clauses are not clear-cut. (And I need to go drag out my most recent contracts with them and check this out.)
So, if you're a Realms
orphan, I strongly advise not attempting to remarket your story for the time being, to avoid creating a contractual problem.
Note: if you had a story orphaned in slush, without a contract in hand, this will not affect you.
