Story about a guy that called himself The Golden Mule, was on an archive site that appears to have disappeared from my bookmarks. Anyone know where it is, or have an archive of the authors works?

PrincelyGuy

The author was artie, but I believe he pulled all of his stories several years ago.

Google provided an archive.

WARNING! I used the link provided and it took me to a contents page for TGM; however ehen I clicked on any of the chapters it took me to several different sites that would shift me to anther when I tried to back out. I had to close the screen and restart Firefox. I don't know if this is something on that site or something in my computer but I wanted to warn you all that there MAY be something hinky there.

McAfee kept blocking things for me so I had no problems backing out (using the pulldown of previous pages). Just the initial click redirected to at LEAST 6 pages before stopping.

I did not know about the malicious actions from that link. I apologize for the issues. Next time I will have to check things out a little closer.

Obliterous

I got lucky with the archive.is site, as all of my tools blocked the malicious content; that's when I realized it was a wrapper for archive.org and went directly there instead.

I have pulled a mirror from archive.org, so I hopefully wont have to ask this particular one again.

I guess there is no way to get the pdf or txt except good old c&p and make it yourself

@zellus

this link might be the best option for this story for now. Heck it might be possible to pull up all of his stories there as well, although I haven't tried that yet.

Obliterous

I was able to grab a siterip of the last known state; no PDFs or epubs, but it looks like all of the stories are there otherwise.

The PDF, EPUB and TXT versions were in ftp.asstr.org/pub/Authors/artie/text/, tgm.pdf and tgm.epub were in there. There was also a follow-up story as tgmr.pdf, .epub and .txt. It may have been tgm revisited.

ftp.asstr.org/pub/Authors/artie/text/


which gives me a 404 not found error and when I check that directory via the asstr page the directory is empty

I said "were in". I must admit to not having checked if that directory had also been archived the way the html versions were.

those files were NOT archived, only the HTML unfortunately. (at least not in the archive that I was able to clone)

-- that's 'The Golden Mule Returns', an unfinished(?) continuation, six parts (though the last is numbered 7) and about a 200kB PDF (TGM's is about 2MB).
