Laser House & Me @ Ze Burns’ blog

Posted in Uncategorized on August 29, 2019 by dwbarbee

Ze Burns was kind enough to feature LASER HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE on his blog, where he compliments the world-building and says I’m like no other bizarro author he’s read. Huge thanks to Ze for the review, which you can read HERE

But that’s not all! I also did an interview for Ze, so head back to his blog to hear about my writerly origins, my thoughts on geek culture, and some hints about what’s to come next.


Preorder Breaking Bizarro!

The latest anthology from Death’s Head Press has arrived: BREAKING BIZARRO. Twenty seven stories from the weirdest weirdos who write weirdly. Death’s Head has been putting out a lot of great anthologies lately, but this one is special because it features my weird backwoods criminal story “SNAKES IN HER HEAD.” I’m especially proud of this story and I hope you read the hell out of it.

Because Excession Press is run by a bunch of maniacs, LASER HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE is now available on Kindle Unlimited (which is to say: IT’S FREE!). Not all of my books are even available for kindle, and none of them are free, so get yourself a copy and if you enjoy it, please leave a review! Amazon reviews are still hugely important for indie books like mine.

If you leave a review of Laser House on the Prairie on the Amazon page (and let me know about it, of course), you will receive a care package in the mail containing cool artwork, prizes, and glow in the dark stuff. And all you gotta do is leave a review of my little hypergeek cyberwestern shoot-em-up-stravaganza.

COMING SOON: Laser House on the Prairie

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on April 2, 2019 by dwbarbee

Check out the cover art and description for my next book, which will be the debut publication from the good folks at Excession Press (putting out high-quality sci-fi and horror in a future near you). They worked very hard on this book and I still can’t thank them enough. Amazon links and promotional gimmicks will soon follow, but for now, drink in this sexy sumbitch:


On a lawless frontier of fiber optic plains, Jeph longs only for a simple life with his husband in their house that floats on a laser beam. Then comes a posse of his old war buddies—the coolest, baddest, razor-sharpest gunslingers on the prairie. They’re on a quest to steal the Red Orb, the world’s most addictive laser weapon, and they want Jeph’s tireless skills with a gun.

All that stands in their way are a bunch of NERDS.

Obsessive, entitles, consumerist, know-it-all nerds, squirreled away in a decadent secret city where even an ancient doomsday device can be lost to the detritus of pop culture. Nerds are the opposite of cool—speaking in references and catchphrases—mindlessly worshipping the convoluted mythologies of their favorite STUFF. They’ve no idea that the smoothest criminals in the land are coming to rob them blind.

It should be an easy score, but nerds ruin everything. Old Jeph will have to fight for his life to escape this quagmire of toxic fandom and return to his LASER HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE.

Zombie Punks Fuck Off (featuring my story “The Ballad of Hank Williams XXX”)

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on September 25, 2018 by dwbarbee

Today’s REAL special. I’ve been published again! ZOMBIE PUNKS FUCK OFF was edited by Sam Richard of Weirdpunk Books. The title and cover art make a promise that the stories inside will definitely deliver. My story is a futuristic rock star tale about the thirtieth Hank Williams, who will be the punkest man in the universe since the Williams’ line just gets more badass with each generation. Anyway, Weirdpunk is a great small press and they’ve teamed up with CLASH BOOKS to distribute this antho, which is great because the folks at CLASH are sharp as hell. Huge thanks to Sam and to Clash for their hard work. I’m especially proud of my story in this one, and I hope you all like it, too.


We’ve been hearing forever that Punk is Dead. And zombies stories are even deader. ZOMBIE PUNKS, FUCK OFF is here to show that is bullshit. This antho is loaded with 14 stories of gnawing teeth, shredded entrails, rotting masses, punk as fuck fury, post-punk weirdness, and beautiful decay. Within these pages are a touring Christian Punk band run afoul of a horde of living dead, a group of zombie-infected anarcho-punks staging a revolution in London, Hank William’s far-distant great-grandson struggling against the restraints of universal fame, and guitars that gently eat.

ZOMBIE PUNKS FUCK OFF will be available on October 9th, but you can preorder it through Amazon or Clashbooks

Get a box full of taters for my newest book, TATERSKINHEADS

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on September 10, 2018 by dwbarbee

Alright, so after a whirlwind of nonsense my latest book is available from Bizarro Pulp Press! It’s called TATERSKINHEADS, it started as a joke on social media, and now it’s a bloody greasepit noir about corrupt cops, heavily armed racists, and murderous potato monsters. It’s kinda like a season of True Detective that took place mostly at a Waffle House that had a xenomorph in it. It’s great, and you can buy it at Amazon through the link provided below…



…you can sign up to get your very own personalized TATERCRATE! What the hell is Tatercrate? It’s like Lootcrate with potatoes, ya dummy. It’s this: You can get a copy of Taterskinheads that’ll be signed and personalized just for you! It’ll be mailed directly inside a box that’ll be way too big for some paper bound up by the small press machine. Tatercrate will also include: Comic books! Horror posters! Horror movies! Cards! Promotional art from some of my previous books! And best of all: CUSTOM TATER-HEADED ACTION FIGURES! This little detail is extra special, because they’re not done yet. You’ll see them later this week, but more important than that, there are only SIX of them! SIX CUSTOMIZED TATERCRATES FULL OF SO MUCH STUFF!

So how do you sign up? PayPal me a measly $12.00 of American currency at and include your mailing info and any other request you might have. I’m a small press author, so for $12.00 I’ll pretty much do anything. Check out the link below, and if you want to taste my taters, sign on up. If you can’t decide, just wait until you see my weird potato-headed children.

Check it out on AMAZON
