IBD Editorial Verdict

Fall Leaves & the Black Dragon is not your average boy meets world story. This book is filled with mysterious characters that will force you to read on, only to be completely blown away at a later stage! It would be inappropriate to say this, but this book will *mindfuck* you. It has deeply embedded psychological elements that demonstrate Erik Gustafson’s abilities in character development, keeping the mystery & suspense in the story and managing to pull off what very few writers can, creating a page turner. Oh, did I mention Dragons, Ghosts and Terror?

Read Sample

Erik spent 20 years in the United States Air Force, where he lived all over the world, including Iceland, Germany and in a tent for a year in Saudi Arabia.

Always an artist at heart, he produced many paintings during his adventures. After his service, he settled down with his family (wife, two great daughters, 2 cats and a little white fluff dog) in small town Iowa, where he loves to volunteer at the antique carousel. Now he helps people with intellectual disabilities reach their potential and teaches psychology classes at a local college.

He switched from a paint brush to a pen and is now a horror writer by night. He has had short stories published by The Horror Zine, Crypto and Co., and Alliterate Ink Publishing. People are saying good things about his craft. “You won’t be disappointed.”

Escape from your reality for a bit and get scared. It feels good.
