Weird List & Pirates

While Googling my name yesterday, I found my book Curious Reality on a list. I’m flattered to be included with books such as: The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, Rant by Chuck Palahniuk, and Gravity’s Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon. Here’s the link:

These 17 Weird Books Will Blow Your Mind

You might be wondering why I was Googling my name. It had nothing to do with vanity, but rather my effort to fight book pirates. There are unscrupulous people out there who run websites offering books for free without the author’s permission. After a discussion about this with another writer, I decided to see if any of my books were being pirated. Sadly the answer is yes.

How can you help? Please don’t get my books or that of any other writer from these sites. They are stealing from us and also you may wind up with an unexpected ‘gift’. Remember the story of the Trojan Horse? The free files you download from these sites can have nasty viruses attached that will invade your computer and wreck havoc.

Back to writing…
