SLIPKNOT's Corey Taylor Teams Up With BitTorrent To Promote His New Book

Posted by on July 16, 2013 at 3:13 pm

Corey Taylor is not just the frontman of Slipknot and Stone Stour, the guy moonlights as a New York Times bestselling author as well. His first book Seven Deadly Sins did so well in fact, that his publishing company offering him the opportunity to write a second book, and he did just that.

The book, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven is out today, and Taylor is choosing a pretty interesting means of promoting it… by teaming up with BitTorrent.

Before you flip your shit and call Taylor a hypocrite or anything else, note that the technology behind BitTorrent is not illegal, what is illegal is people using the technology of peer-to-peer sharing to distribute copyrighted materials.

Taylor has teamed up with BitTorrent to (legally) distribute a free preview of his book, using a service called BitTorrent Bundle, where artists can post torrents previewing their work. Taylor's bundle includes:

  • Part 1 of Taylor’s new book, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven
  • Book cover art for A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven
  • A sample of Corey Taylor's comic House of Gold & Bones, Book 1
  • 4 original comic book covers
  • 4 alt comic book covers
  • Sketches from House of Gold & Bones, Book 1

If this sounds like something you'd want to try out, it takes a few seconds to download. You can grab the preview here.

The book is available for purchase at Amazon.com.
