Welcome to the official website for Josh Roseman, fiction writer and voice artist. You may have seen my writing in Asimov's, or heard my voice on Escape Pod and StarShipSofa. I'm also a web developer, a father, and a human being. I have a full bio here, and a full listing of my published works here. Please feel free to add me to your RSS reader, or to whatever social network you prefer. You can e-mail me if you want me to write or voice something for you. Thanks for visiting.
PS: I'm now a member of the SFWA. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.
Josh Roseman’s ‘Greener’ is basically a relationship story and the pressures such things come under while both parties come under the pressure of showing they’re clean before they’re allowed to touch. I didn’t find this a particularly pleasant story to read either in its characters or in its assumptions about the society its set in.
He’s right. It’s not a particularly pleasant story. I don’t think any of the characters (except perhaps the kids and the escort) are ones you can really root for. But then, I wrote it that way on purpose.
