Reed W. Huston


Reed Huston is a mild mannered engineer who loves to read and write in his lounging time. His favorite authors include Stephen King, Michael Crichton and Clive Cussler. No genre of book is too otherworldly for him, though he does prefer horror and adventures. Reed has written many short stories, though only a few appear on this site. His preferences are thrillers and horror. Reed also hopes to someday finish writing that epic historical fantasy novel set in Egypt followed by that space opera that's been floating around in his head waiting to be put to paper.

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
I actually have a host of favorite authors. When I was younger, I actually grew up reading a lot of work by Michael Crichton. Books like Jurassic Park and Disclosure really showed me an author doesn't necessarily have to be confined to the same genre to be interesting. Stephen King is also right up there when it comes to a list of my favorite authors. Pet Sematary, The Shining and Salem's Lot are all intriguing and suspenseful reads. Finally, I also have to mention Clive Cussler, whose adventure stories like Sahara and Treasure of Khan take me on escapist journeys.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Mostly through sifting through some of my favorite genres like horror, thrillers and adventures. I don't search for a book with an express interest in reading it; rather I'm quite interested in picking up what appeals to me right off the shelf.

Smashwords book reviews by Reed W. Huston

  • Brain Transplant on May 14, 2016

    An interesting take on an interesting topic. After all, aren't we all interested in prolonging the inevitable and becoming immortal? Great read!
  • They Don't Exist on May 16, 2016

    Great quick short story with a good payoff!
  • The Glove on Dec. 27, 2016

    This was an interesting read. Something you'd tell at a sleepover with all the lights turned off. The author manages to create a sense of wonder and horror as we witness everything from a child's POV. Good read!
