Zorro, by Johnston McCulley

I tried to get the books which I believe to be in public domain. Gutenberg has only two books by the author, and mobileread doesn't have a single book by McCulley. Can someone point me to a legally free upload?

The Curse of Capistrano, the title under which The Mark of Zorro was first serialized, is in the public domain in the US and Life+50 countries (including Mauritius). It can be found in a few places under its original name; here's a link to Feedbooks:

I loved it.

1949 is the most recent death year for life+70 (or is it 1948?). Johnston McCulley died in 1958.

There are several stories or books by Charles L. Fontenay (1917 - 2017) on Project Gutenberg. Similarly for Randall Garrett (1927 - 1987).

Why are some author's books in the public domain when they died after the life+70 cutoff year?

The US is not a Life+70 country.

1948 is the most recent death year for Life+70.
