Hi there..

i´m looking for informations about Jack Schaeffer. He´s the autor of the Forever Saga and his story was postet on Nifty and Castle Roland, sadly not here.
Now, with the pandemic ongoing, he has stopped posting new chapters in august or september 2020.
I´m worried if he´s alright and if he will continue his Story.

Maybe someone of you has read his story of Jack and Sam and is in contact with him?
Can anyone tell me, if the autor is ok?

Any information would easy my worries...

Jack has a mailing list.  I've not heard from it for a month or more, though.  He and I have spoken about his work and this site. It's too far outside our niche, unfortunately, because it's a good tale, well crafted.

Have you tried emailing him?

Yes, i have tried mailing him, but no answer this far.

Even his books are not available at amazone.

I´m really worried for him. 

His story on Nifty.. gone.

Castle Roland.. gone.

No autor named Jack Schaeffer to be found on both. :/

Using Nifty's  search I can see that Forever is present in the search results, but is a 404 error when you click the link

jackschaeffer.com still exists

His last newsletter was 4 December

What do the folk at Castke Roland say?

Jack Schaeffer still has a story on the Castle (it was entered as a contest story). However, his Forever series has been removed, as of the 18th. Jack requested this as he says he intends to rewrite the story.

Whether or not he does and resubmits it, is neither here nor there. I always abide by an authors wishes... It is their intellectual property, after all!

All the best,
Al

As long as Jack is well in himself that is truly all that matters.  He's had a rocky few years of late
