About Joshua M. Patton

Father of a brilliant Gen Z kid, Army combat veteran, and storyteller born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA,  A cunning warrior, the best star-pilot in the galaxy, and a good friend. Approaches his work as an entertainment critic keeping in mind the word doesn't mean "be critical" but rather encourages us to "think critically." He collects books (to read) and models of every starship Enterprise (to gaze upon lovingly.) The first volume of his collection of literary short stories written in the comic book tradition, TALES OF ADVENTURE & FANTASY, is available for purchase on Amazon in both print and ebook. Infinite diversity in infinite combinations, but the inertial dampers are always failing. He is one with the Force, and the Force is with him.
