Steve Dustcircle


Born in Chicago, Steve relocated a lot, and finally landed in Columbus, OH. He has his hand in many forms of activism, mainly focusing on human rights and free thought. Music also has been a huge part of his life. On a small scale, there's not much he hasn't done, and there is little that he hasn't read about. He loves good coffee, cold lager, and stimulating conversation.

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
I really enjoy a large variety of authors, mostly nonfictional ones. Anything that has to do with nontheism, science 101, human rights, religious history, and progressive politics. If I have to name a few authors, they'd be Naomi Wolf, Noam Chomsky, Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Chris Hedges, Robert Ingersoll, Robert Price, Bart Ehrman, and Jesse Ventura.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Learning something new. Interacting. I love to compile news digests on what's going on in the world, be it politics or religion, but both are usually intertwined.

Smashwords book reviews by Steve Dustcircle

  • How God's Light Blinded Me on July 21, 2014

    Short, quick biography on going from religious to non-religious, I thought the book was honest, sympathetic, and easy to read. Broken down into rapid-page chapters, sprinkled with an editorial error here and there, this small booklet (ebook single?) is raw, transparent, and much needed in a superstitious world looking for rational testimonies of life outside of the religious bubble.
