Publisher info

Bad Dream Entertainment is a small-press publisher of dark fiction, horror, science fiction, and humor. Founded in 2013 by editor Brett Reistroffer, BDE was established as a home for short fiction from new and underground writers with a focus on dark, story and character-driven contemporary fantasy. 2014 saw the release of BDE’s first published book, Birney Reed’s The Tales of Victor Coachman, a single-author collection of short horror and thriller stories. This was followed the next year with the hilarious sci-fi adventure comedy Usu, by South African author Jayde Ver Elst. With the next release, Dark Little Dreams, Bad Dream Entertainment presents a collection of short horror and contemporary fantasy fiction that represents the first two years of our online publishing.
