About Joshua Young
Joshua M. Young lives in Columbus, Ohio with his wife, son, and two more feral cats than the optimal number of feral cats. (That is, zero.) He holds a Master of Divinity from Ashland Theological Seminary, and yes, he's quite aware that writing this kind of stuff isn't exactly what you'd expect from a trained theologian. A life long lover of science fiction and fantasy, one of his earliest memories involves some confusion with a Klingon Bird of Prey and an X-Wing in the middle of a theater showing The Search for Spock, and, once upon a time, he could select the desired Robotech novel from his bookshelf, in the dark, by the feel of its spine. (Don't ask why that was a necessary skill. He couldn't tell you.) He has been published in numerous anthologies, including Planetary: Mercury, Planetary: Venus, and Tales of the Once and Future King.

Review: Death Stranding

January 16, 2020 0

Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid series, Death Stranding) is a bit like the video game version of Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou). The comparison isn’t immediate. Anderson makes awkward dramadies about Read More

The State of Star Wars

December 19, 2019 1

I’d like to say I have a long history with Star Wars, but frankly, we all do at this point. It’s not even really nerd-culture anymore, but just a cultural touchstone. Maybe it’s fair to Read More

D.C. Fontana, 1939-2019

December 5, 2019 2

Dorothy Fontana isn’t quite the household name that Gene Roddenberry is, but if you watch enough pre-2000 scifi, you’ll discover that there’s a subtle and pleasant flavor to certain episodes, here and there. For me, Read More
