I"m sorry the site will no longer be available, but I understand your 
decision.  Thanks for all the work that you put into it!  I do wonder, 
however, if there's some way to keep some features available, especially the 
listserve archives, which made it so easy to search for info about a 
specific title.  As I remember, developing this was a collaborative effort 
between you and Scot.  Any chance that it could get plugged into Scot's
