Links to any html versions of it (Shike) have also been removed (and they used to be there). I'm not certain whether or not one can UN-Creative Commons something or not (once it's out there), but I prefer to honor the wishes of the rights-holder when in doubt. *shrug*

Also... Shea's solo work is nothing like the stuff he wrote with Robert Anton Wilson (Illuminatus!). I've read and enjoyed both, but I wouldn't want anyone to get the wrong idea.

The first part of the Shike novels is located at manybooks, here:

I wonder if one can (as you mention) un-do a Creative Commons License?

(We should probably start a thread on that issue, if discussion veers away too deeply and too long from the OPs right to this thread.)
