Hi Alasdair Taylor answered my que4stion 210595191 but am still puzzled. Three separate contracts for three individual short stories. Contract say they have world wide publishing rights for each individual story but I retain the copyright rights. Can I legally publish all three short stories in one book under a revised and re-edited edition?
I'm afraid I'm not able to give a more specific answer here. You need to ask a publishing lawyer to read the contract, and they will also want to ask you some questions about the matter.
