When I googled I found several sites that had them for free, but they also had some recent hot releases for free, so assume they are disreputable.
So why hasn't Hemingway's copyright expired?
Why would it have done? Hemmingway only died in 1961, so his works will enter the public domain in life+70 countries on 1st Jan 2032.
