I was just looking through ebooks that are public domain and was wondering whether Orwell's 1984 is public domain:

No it isn't, but it will be on 1 January 2021, so it won't be long!

From the book's Wikipedia article:
"[...] the United Kingdom is considered the country of origin and its copyright period extends until the first day of January following 70 years after the death of the author. George Orwell [...] died in 1950, so the novel enters the public domain on 1 January 2021.
