Today let me deeply deplore the fact that the evil ascendancy of this sinister and criminal individual (you will surely recognize him) has been depriving us for so many years of the stories of the talented author Jack Schaeffer.

Is this the author you're talking about?

https://jackschaeffer.com/

I found it without too much trouble; it bears a 2024 copyright date, so it seems current. I see only two works on the site; are there others that you know about that we aren't seeing?

There is also the Looking for Jack Schaeffer thread over in the General Talk section of this site.  It's a little older (a few posts from 2021 and a few more from 2022), but does mention that his stories are outside the niche to be posted here, and at least one story that had been posted elsewhere on a couple of other sites was removed at his request for an intended rewrite.

That is correct, Mark. Back in 2021, Jack requested we (Castle Roland) remove his stories for a supposed rewrite.
