About AMAZING STORIES

We're fighting for the future of Amazing Stories!

We licensed a major corporation several years ago and factored licensing fees into our budget.  Unfortunately, those fees have not been received, which places us behind the 8-ball.

Our licensee has been formally notified of numerous breeches of our contract and our intention to terminate that contract.  Service was sent to the contractually designated addresses and we have received no response, not even an acknowledgement of our notice to them.

This strongly suggests that they are planning on waiting to see what we are going to do and then will use their enormous budget and other assets to continue to ignore the fact that they no longer have the rights to use the name, or, perhaps even more problematic, sue us in order to remove us from the picture.

We can not afford to defend ourselves from such an unjustified action at this point in time.  Further, the current state of limbo discourages any other studio from working with the property, preventing us from developing other potential revenue sources.

Perhaps "encouraging" us to go away was the plan all along - but given the lack of communication, we doubt we'll ever know the real reasons behind why they have chosen not to honor their contractual obligations.

What we DO know is, fighting this fight has put us in a deep hole and if the licensee decides to fight (likely), we'll be in an even deeper hole.

We need your help to keep this dream alive.

We anticipate legal expenses as we fight to enforce the termination of our contract  owing to numerous breaches of that agreement. (And it should be noted that owing to similar violations in the past we agreed to re-negotiate that contract in good faith, only to experience the same results.)

We're not just asking for your financial support (please contribute anything you are comfortable with) but also for your grass roots support. We want the licensee to know that the audience we brought them - science fiction fans - supports the legacy of Amazing Stories and not a bunch of mundanes in three piece suits bent on cultural domination: they don't care about Science Fiction, Amazing Stories, the fans or anyone else. They care only for their bank accounts and controlling commodities that bring them money and influence.

And yes, we believe that what is happening to Amazing Stories is part of the same institutionalized Hollywood attitude that currently sees Disney refusing to pay royalties to numerous authors based on a thin excuse and the immunity from legal action that their dollars provide.

Please help us in any way that you can - a contribution, on-going support, a statement online, a letter, a supporting comment in news coverage. Don't let them kill Amazing Stories.
