    google it "Dean Koontz ebook torrent"

    you should have Torrent - a (very) tiny BitTorrent client software.

    If it's a torrent, it's pirated, so the author isn't being paid for their work. How shall authors eat in the future if their work is given such little value?

    FYI... torrents doesn't automatically mean illegal. there are plenty of artists who offer legally free downloads via http and torrents

    Most authors don't, unless they are independently wealthy and don't need to be paid for their writing.

    There are several online stores where you can buy them from. We've just started negotiating to setup our own online e-book store. Taking a little longer than expected... because people have the mind set "they're just going to rip the books in asia".
