The Unreconstructed M by Philip K. Dick is PUBLIC DOMAIN.

It’s public domain status was not previously known because the copyright was thought to have been renewed. But it wasn’t.

The confusion stems from this document:

RE220675

You will note that the renewal form shows The Unreconstructed M as having been published in a magazine called Other Worlds, November 1956.

That is completely false.

Here is the table of contents for the November 1956 issue of Other Worlds:
Other Worlds, November 1956 - table of contents

The Unreconstructed M was actually published in the January 1957 issue of Science Fiction Stories (aka Original Science Fiction Stories).

Here is the table of contents from that issue:
Science Fiction Stories, January 1957 - table of contents (includes The Unreconstructed M by Philip K. Dick)

Here is a |PDF| made from it’s publication in Science Fiction Stories.
