Josh Wagner was born with a hole in his heart, a Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD). He’s fine now. He studied Creative Writing and Lit at the University of Montana, and received his MSc from Edinburgh University in 2019. Though he has worked extensively in comics, film and theatre, prose remains his true and abiding love.
The author of four novels and dozens of short stories, Wagner’s work has been described as surreal and fantastic, metafictional and paradoxical, poetic and whimsical. His stories have been published by Cafe Irreal, Not One of Us, Cleaver Magazine, Medulla Review, Lovecraft eZine, and Image Comics. He is facinated by rhizomes, paradoxes, things left unsaid and the ambiguities tucked inside longing and motivation.
