About Josh Shiben

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

I enjoyed the delivery of this story. Much happens in the distance to paint the full picture.

Wow! I wasn't sure about this from the description as I could not imagine feeling this was scary. Josh Shiben uses flashbacks to great effect to slow down the forward rush of the current situation in the story. He plays with the narrator like nobody's business, giving enough of a glimmer of insight for those of us reading to grasp the full picture but refusing the hero the same.

I am now scared for others.
