Munseys [free ebooks] - KICKED THE BUCKET?

This used to be the old Blackmask collection of free ebooks. Then, through a legal fiasco involving copyrighted ebooks, they had to take down their site. They resurfaced as Munseys (I think it was called).

I'm now wondering if they bit the bullet, kicked the bucket, cleaned the outhouse, ate the horse, buried the corpse....well, you get the idea.

Does anyone have any information on this - perhaps now DEAD - site?

[Say it ain't so, Joe, and I'll correct my Subject Header.]

Yes. The site went down last summer and has been down the several times I checked since then.

Welcome.

The guy behind the site is not responding to email, Twitter, etc so I fear some extreme life event may have occurred.

Well...let's hope that actually isn't the real reason for its demise.

I had in mind the company, not the person behind the site. Don't want anyone to think that I'm making fun of someone's death. I, too, hope that that isn't the real reason for its demise.

I didn't take it that way at all. But it made me wonder if that IS the reason the site has been discontinued.

There's a mention on the Amazon forum that there may have been copyright issues. Basically, Conde Nast bought some copyright on old material which they weren't going to republish and sued.

I could find some words for Conde Nast that aren't in the unabridged dictionary. They went after Black Mask before which caused the site to be revamped. Gluttony (whether in food or data) is not becoming.
