In response to enquiries about the destiny of CSL printed volumes:

Yes, the books are still very much on sale from NYUP and their 
affiliates (http://www.claysanskritlibrary.org/order.php), as will be 
the 9 volumes (including 2 reprints) to appear this summer 
(http://www.claysanskritlibrary.org/volumes.php?show=12).

>How terribly unfortunate for Indologists and general readers alike!  These

>class I'm teaching in the fall, so I hope it's still available.  Will the
>press continue to print and sell the final 56 volumes indefinitely?
