It's not "legit" in the sense of being legal-- Lungbarrow and the other BBC website e-books were contracted for distribution by the BBC website only, so spreading copies now that they've been removed from the site is outside the terms the authors agreed to. Whether it's ethical is another question.
I did mean legal, that's why I didn't post a link to where I saw it on google.
Putting an ebook online for free though is kind of a cat out of the bag situation.
