There is an Anais Nin Foundation and an Anais Nin Trust.
As Paul Herron has advised our site:
Please note that Paul Herron of Sky Blue Press not Blue Sky Press is not phasing out, and has released Volume 5 of A Café In Space: The Anais Nin Literary Journal this year, and Vol. 6 is set for release in 2009. In addition, the 1939 version of The Winter of Artifice was also recently released. We are still distributing Volumes 1-19 of Gunther Stuhlmann’s Anais, An International Journal and that is not the same journal as A Café In Space: The Anais Nin Literary Journal nor is it a continuation thereof. Requests for permission are to be made in writing to the Anais Nin Trust, not the foundation
Herron is a member of the Trust (as he notes in an earlier email to the site in January) and we presume, can forward any written permission requests in writing to the said Trust.
Rupert Pole was the President of the Anais Nin Foundation. On the death of Nin's agent extraordinaire, who wrote the brilliant introductions to the Diaries, Pole wrote the site with instructions.

To: Subscribers of ANAIS: an International JournalThe Anais Nin Foundation announces regrettably that we are terminating future publications of ANAIS: an International Journal. This is to honor the last wish of Gunther Stuhlmann, before his death in April this year, who had been its sole editor and had heroically dedicated his time and effort bringing out nineteen volumes of the Journal.Please understand that the checks already received by the Foundation for the next issue of the Journal will not be returned to the senders because we are short of man-power at this time, but these checks will not be cashed. Also we
are sorry to announce that we are no longer able to meet your requests for back issues. All activities concerning the Journal will cease from this date.We thank all the subscribers for the warm and enthusiastic support you have given to the Journal over the last two decades.
President The Anais Nin Foundation
When Rupert Pole died, our site's editor Donna Ippolito (who was Anais Nin's editor at Swallow Press) had a cordial email exchange with Rupert Pole's step brother Eric Lloyd Wright. Wright had designed Nin and Rupert's House of Light on Hildago which had been for many years the address for the Anais Nin Foundation. At that time he was kind enough to give us an update on the new realities. We will post portions of these emails in our next blog.
