The Hand of NergalEdit

Regarding this, why do you believe that the author has released their copyright? John Vandenberg (chat) 02:15, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

I believed that it was under that free access because it was a fragment that was never published and I'd assumed that the Lin Carter add-on peice, official titled "The Hand of Nergal" would fall into a seperate category, as that is a full story based off of another's, REH's official 2 page fragment, listed here.

We would like to keep this fragment, however we need to ensure it is public domain. We will try to help work out its copyright status. Where did you obtain the fragment from ? John Vandenberg (chat) 03:42, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
