* Permission has been obtained from most copyright holders to post their respective Menard nuclear pamphlets online here. However, the authors and/or heirs of the authors of three of the original texts, Andrew White (The Terror of Balance), John Gleisner and the late Anthony Tucker (Crucible of Despair), and the late Donald MacKinnon (Creon and Antigone), have so far proved impossible to locate. Should I succeed in tracking them down, I am sure they will agree to this re-publication online. (If any reader knows of the whereabouts of any of the authors or their heirs, please let us know). Meanwhile, I have authorised Ilan Kelman to publish the three texts on the understanding that the posting(s) will be taken down immediately if eventual approval is not forthcoming.
-- Anthony Rudolf, Publisher Menard Press, 12 September 2015, (Thirty five years since the first one appeared.)
