I had suspected but, now have confirmed that Leucrota Press, the small publishing company that published my first short story is no more. From what I can glean from the Internet, it looks like they closed due to bankrupcy as the main reason.
I had hoped that Leucrota would be able to ride out the turbulent publishing industry after purchasing Arkham Tales and signing Shaun Jeffery's The Kult over for a movie deal.
I have to say that, it's a bit sad to see the company that published my first story taking me from aspiring writer to published author was not able to to hold it's own. Maybe like the Phoenix it may rise from the ashes.
