Dorchester Goes Dark

It seems like Dorchester Publishing's decline is continuing. They have reportedly ceased operating from their official address. They currently employ no editorial staff whatsoever. Multiple authors report missing sales information and non-payment over an extended period. Freelancers also report non-payment from Dorchester Media which operates the True Story magazines ("Trues") [example]. Their viability is so low some have declared them dead [example], while others report staff are "working from home" [example].

It may seem repetitive to keep reporting this, but it keeps happening. Dorchester keeps getting less viable, keeps selling book and magazines, and keeps not paying authors.  This keeps being unacceptable.
