I would like to see my retellings of classic literature used in schools, so I give permission to the country of Finland (and all other countries) to buy one eBook and give copies to all students forever. I also give permission to the state of Texas (and all other states) to buy one eBook and give copies to all students forever. I also give permission to all teachers to buy one eBook and give copies to all students forever.
Teachers need not actually teach my retellings. Teachers are welcome to give students copes of my ebooks as background material. For example, if they are teaching Homer's "Iliad" and "Odyssey," teachers are welcome to give students copies of my "Virgil's 'Aeneid': A Retelling in Prose" and tell students, "Here's another ancient epic you may want to read in your spare time."
