Josh Shiben lives in the swamps of Fredericksburg, Virginia with his wife and two mongrels. An aerospace engineer by day and couch potato by night, Josh has from a young age been in love with storytelling. Whether they be told through published works, e-books, or simply around a burning campfire, he's always particularly loved the captivating, yet intimate power of a scary story. Born in the late eighties, Josh spent his formative years reading Goosebumps, watching Are You Afraid of the Dark, and hiding under the blankets reading the esteemed Alan Schwartz's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Today, his favorite authors include Dan Simmons, Stephen King, Richard Matheson and H.P. Lovecraft.
His first novella, Dreams of Eschaton, is available now. He also blogs (ir)regularly at https://WrithingWord.blogspot.com/

Very, very good. It is so nice to read this type of horror story without all the jaw-breaking adjectives others throw in. Josh Shiben knows exactly the right words to use for maximum effect.
