The Complete Dean Koontz Book List

Like if this Guide is helpful

After a troubled childhood, Dean Ray Koontz went on to become a bestselling author, who has used his experiences to create remarkable characters and fantastic storylines.  At least seven of his novels have hit number one on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list (Lightning, Midnight, Cold Fire, Hideaway, Dragon Tears, Intensity, and Sole Survivor), and he’s one of only ten writers ever to have achieved that milestone.

Mr Koontz is on the right.  Trixie the Dog only writes romance ;-)

Mr Koontz writes under many pseudonyms, the ones I found are listed below.  I hope you find this list helpful, I’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible!  Please let me know if anything is incorrect…  Thank you.

To Search, please use “Cntrl” + “F”…

I spend hours compiling and checking each of my guides before publication.  It is my goal to be one of the top 25 reviewers in Australia.  If you do find this guide helpful in any way, please recognise my hard work by voting yes.  I appreciate every helpful vote I receive.

I have deliberately omitted the “secret” pen name that Mr Koontz apparently wishes to keep private.
