Robert Reed Quotes

Robert Reed Quotes: A favorite science fiction writer of mine is William Faulkner! It was an idea that came to me once, years ago, and I've never quite been able to shake it.

Sayings about Robert Reed: I would like to say that I have software that allows me to model worlds to a high degree of scientific plausibility.
