Joe, you don't have to shout.
As for getting the Casefiles free, that is not going to happen till at least 2087 at the earliest. The Casefiles are still under copyright, and considering that the last book was only released to stores 9 years, 10 months ago, and some odd number of days, no one is going to want to risk getting prosecuted by S&S for copyright infringment. Even though the series is dead and out of print, under copyright laws, Simon & Schuster can still defend the series and prosecute people. Now then, if the series had been printed in prior to 1950, we might be looking at a couple of books not having been renewed properly, so they would be in the public domain, but with the Casefiles having only turned 20 years old in April 2007, the only way to get the books is to look for them in paperback at a used bookstore (or as some people might say, check EBAY or Chapters.ca or Amazon.com's used sections). I just checked both Simonsays.com and Simonsayscanada.com and neither site is listing any Casefiles as being available.
