Donna Jo Atwood | 3157 comments Steampunk Prime: A Vintage Steampunk Reader was published in 2010, but all the stories in them were originally published between 1897 and 1916. Would this qualify?

I don't think this will work, Donna Jo. The book itself needs to have been published before 1960 - otherwise, the job of verifying it gets pretty complicated.

Okay. Not a problem. I read it next week instead of saving it.

Joanna (walker) | 434 comments Does that rule apply to classics? I was thinking of reading something like plays by Euripides (one of the ancient greeks), but I don't know if my library has copies that were actually published before 1960.

It's not a problem if the work itself was pre 1960 - the book doesn't have to have been printed before. The problem with the Steampunk book was that it was a collection of short stories, so every individual story would have to be looked at.

With a complete work that was published earlier, it's easy to verify from the main GR page that it was in fact published prior to 1960.
