    It's at URL http://www.h33t.com/index.php and it lists a number of books and even short stories in addition to movies and games that can be downloaded. Problem is, they're violating copyright. I know because at least two novels and one short story belong to me and I haven't given them permission to distribute my work, especially not for free. I found mine at URL http://www.h33t.com/details.php?id=f...035ccdfe4d84fd within that site.

    If you have any published work, you might want to check out this site and see if any of your work is available there.

    Heck, they're ripping off D&D books from TSR.

    Every place with stolen material rips off D&D books. Many older and even newer products are available as (legal) PDF downloads, so those tend to get passed around on newsgroup and torrent sites. (By the way, TSR hasn't existed for 10 years. D&D is owned by Wizards of the Coast, which is owned by Hasbro.)

    I don't know if I should be happy that my book wasn't on there or disappointed that no one ever thinks it's worth stealing.

    People like these scumbags keep authors from selling books, IMHO. I hope someone sues them and wins, then shuts them down.
