That said, let me explain what I mean. I'm not for one instant claiming that no one can write a story using the basic conceit of He@, which is "A future or near-future setting where anachronistic and obsolete technology is given a new lease on life, not just because it is cool, but for plausible reasons within the setting." That would be greedy, and if my work inspires others, I'm flattered.
What I am saying is that when I discuss He@ on this site, I am specifically talking about my novel-in-progress unless I say otherwise. Thus, anything in regards to the book -- be it characters, setting, plot or plot elements -- is copyrighted inasmuch as these things can be.
