Dr. Reiter is currently Interim Department Arts & Sciences Chair, Associate Professor and Coordinator of Literature at Lancaster Bible College.

He is the author of over a dozen academic articles on theology and genre fiction, and he has published several poems and short stories in the horror, fantasy, and science fiction genres.
