David Crouse is an award-winning short story writer and teacher. His stories have appeared in some of the country's most well regarded journals, including The Greensboro Review, Chelsea, Quarterly West, and The Beloit Fiction Journal. His comic book writing has been anthologized in The Darkhorse Book of the Dead, published by Darkhorse Comics.

He admires the work of many contemporary authors, ranging from the traditional to the expertimental. These include Don DeLillo (The Names, Running Dog, Libra), Toni Morrison, James Salter, Philip K. Dick, Mary Robison, John Cheever, James Baldwin, Grace Paley, and Sherman Alexie. He is also a big fan of fringe art: punk rock, "outsider" music, neo-psychedlia, experimental electronic music, found art, Italian zombie movies, and other odd cultural artifacts.
