Goodreads Author


Member Since
January 2011


I write weird stories that make people feel maybe a little confused and sickly, like they are recovering from a very long illness that changed their body in some way. I am also the editor of the online Bizarro, Surrealist, Weirdo publication, "The Mustache Factor" (http://mustachefactor.blogspot.com/)


My own stories have appeared online at Bizarro Central, and The New Flesh. I also have two stories in the Magazine of Bizarro Fiction, and my novella "Grambo" has been released as a part of the 2013 NBAS, from Eraserhead Press.



Other stories can be found in the Anthologies "Dead History 2" "Christmas in Outer Space" "Diamonds in the Rough" "The Best Of Lame Goat Press" "Like Frozen Statues of Flesh" "2013: The Aftermath" and many more.

I am a bit of a Mansonphile.


That is: someone obsessed with Charles Manson.


I do not think he is Christ. But maybe he is.


If anyone has to be, why can't it be him? Or you?


Or even me?


Doesn't matter.


I am a member of Goodreads.


Goodreads is like facebook for nerds.

description

I wanted to like this so much, but it was a snooze-fest that took me several days to read. The art was beautiful, lush, and vibrant...which was in stark contrast to the flaky, boring, dried out dialogue.
Too much talky, not enough action.

Barry Allen is back from the dead and he is running fast! Whooooooo Boy! He runs fast and a bunch of other Flash speedsters run fast too! It's awesome. I like it when he runs fast. I keep it simple.

Thanks for letting me know. That guy is a lunatic!

R.L. Baupader Hey Dustin, just as a heads up, a certain fan-fiction author that has an issue with valid reviews has it out for you.

"I got a Voodoo horror story going -- think this one will go to a magazine I haven't sent to yet. Thinking they might get a kick ouit of this one. I borrow from GAME OVER and Bleed The Freak with it. A message to people out there with that damn video out there -- don't piss me off Dustin Reede enjoy being a horror target.

Hey Dustin Reede -- I am going to kick you in your nuts with the next story. I am going to make some money doing it -- it's a dark story like Fandom Writer but a lot of the trash talking like Adam Sandler. Picture Adam Sandler writing with Rod Serling."

Like it matters.
