Agreement Reached with Galaktika on Past Infringements

The Authors Guild and Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) previously announced that they collaboratively reached an agreement with a Hungarian science fiction magazine, Galaktika, which for years had been reprinting stories of American and British science fiction writers without their permission. Under the terms of the agreement, Metropolis Media, Galaktika’s publisher, promised to seek permission for any works they use in the future and to compensate the authors and estates whose works were published without permission. Galaktika has agreed to pay each author or estate whose work it infringed fair compensation, with the fee to be negotiated on a case-by-case basis. (Please refer to the end of this post for more information about how to contact Galaktika.)

Part of the settlement between the magazine Galaktika and SFWA and the Authors Guild was that Galaktika would provide a complete list of authors whose work had been published without authorization by Galaktika. The list below was created from the spreadsheet that they provided, and, as far as SFWA can discover, it is accurate. This list includes authors or their representatives who have already come to agreements with Galaktika or are still in the process of negotiation. It is being made public to aid authors who may not know their work was published without authorization. Note that some of the works affected may be out of copyright in Hungary.

Authors and estates (or agents representing authors or authors’ estates) whose works have been infringed by Galaktika may contact Dr. Katalin Mund with their claims. She can be reached at mund.katalin@gmail.com. Authors Guild members can also contact the Authors Guild at staff@authorsguild.org for help negotiating their settlements. Affected authors can request the details of the unauthorized publication(s), including the names of stories and publication date by emailing settlement@sfwa.org. SFWA members who believe that Galaktika is not living up to this agreement by negotiating in good faith should contact John E. Johnston III at griefcom@sfwa.org.
