You’re a living author. I don’t want to steal from a living author. I don’t have money to afford any of your works. I feel compelled to read a few of your works though. Is it at all possible that I might have your permission to torrent a few of your works?

neil-gaiman:

You know, there is an AWFUL lot of free stuff already out there, if your conscience is likely to give you hell for torrenting.

For example…

Here’s 5 short stories. Here’s the whole of the Graveyard Book. Here are links to several other short stories and novelettes online, along with lots of other audio and video stuff: http://www.openculture.com/2011/12/neil_gaimans_free_short_stories.html

And here are the 12 stories in A CALENDAR OF TALES.

And you could also support your local community by going to the library, where a librarian will, I suspect, be only too happy to give you books by me to read for free.
