closetpuritan reviews “Survivor”

I think I might like this one best. […] This is sort of a push-your-limits-triumph-over-adversity story, and I liked the protagonist’s struggle between pessimism–”I’m going to die”–and determination to try to survive–”I can do this”.

I recently found this review of my story “Survivor”. Thanks, closetpuritan, for your kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed the story.

About Josh Roseman

Josh Roseman (not the trombonist; the other one) has been published in -- among others -- Asimov's, Escape Pod, and Evil Girlfriend Media. In 2015, he released his first collection, The Clockwork Russian and Other Stories, and followed it up with 2016's Memories of My Father. When not writing, he mostly complains that he's not writing. Find him online at, or on Twitter @listener42.

  1. You’re welcome! Gotta say, several years later, this is the story from that book that I found the most memorable.
