Thanks to generous help, we now have, we believe at least, all books by James Allen
in English available here.

This doesn’t mean however that the library is now complete. We’re still looking for
people that can help us trace and are willing to lend us copies of James Allen’s
magazines The Light of Reason and The Epoch, texts by Allen in other publications, in
any form, be it on paper, or in some digital format. We would also like to collect
articles about James Allen published during his lifetime and shortly thereafter and
James Allen texts translated into other languages. For translations that aren’t in the
public domain, we need permission from the translator(s) to publish them here.
Contact us if you can help.

As James Allen died more than 70 years ago, all his writings are now in the public
domain. You are free to copy or distribute any of the original English texts by James
Allen on this site. Other sites offering Allen's texts claim copyright over it by slightly
altering the texts. I find that rather sad. Especially as these sites contain ads and ask
for donations (and most likely copied the texts from this site in the first place). All texts
are here free for the taking. If you want to express your thanks in any way, just drop us
a line and donate some money to your favourite charity instead.

For the translations on this site, the situation is different. In some cases the translator
has been dead for more than 70 years. In all other cases the copyright for the
translations is owned by their respective translators. These translations may not be
copied or distributed without permission from the translator. Translators have
either given explicit permission for the publishing of their translation(s) on this site, or
the publishers of this site have unsuccesfully tried everything within their power to
track down the translator. If you are a translator of one or more of the translations
published on this site and you object to publication here, please contact us and we will
immediately remove your translation(s). 2/27/2010
