More About the Author

When I was born on August 3, 1976 in the great state of Michigan the hills shook and the sky was swept with fire. These were portents of the greatness for my future that was written in the stars ... I'm still waiting for that greatness.

My name is Josh Hilden and I am many things. I am a husband, a father, a son, a friend. These are all important things but at my core I am an artist and the medium that I work in is words. I am a writer of Role Playing Games, short stories, essays, poetry, novellas, and full size books. I worked for Palladium Books (www.palladiumbooks.co) and Third Eye Games (www.thirdeyegames.net) before striking out on my own and founded a small press publishing company Gorillas with Scissors Press (www.gwspress.com). I am also writing for Fat Goblin Games (www.fatgoblingames.com).

In the everyday world I can be found spending time with my family and friends. I have been married to my lovely wife Karen for 16 years and we have six amazing children. We tend to be a family of unabashed geeks and gamers who were geek before geek was chic.

If you are really interested in me I am very active online with a personal and a writing blog along with a plethora of social media outlets. All links are available at my website (www.joshhilden.com). If you have any questions or just want to chat hit me up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Poor Bob 19 Dec 2013
By avidreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Poor fella lost his best buddy (the dog) then he lost his humans when they turned to zombies. I feel like Bob will find new friends and another dog buddy as soon as he meets up with some campers in the woods.

2.0 out of 5 stars I Really Wanted to Like It 1 Oct 2013
By Krimini - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
When I came across this story, and the one that follows it, they were being offered free so I decided to grab them and give them a read. Normally I would not bother with a story under 100 pages as I am not a fan of short stories, and even less so when they stand alone and are called "books". To me a book is distinctly longer with a clear beginning, plot, and ending along with a protagonist (good guy) and antagonist (bad guy), and lastly the plot should take longer to read than it does to make toast... but that's just me.
Back to Bob. I had a lot of questions such as why a bear was living with people rather than having been set free, how it was that he could not be set free to fend for himself before the apocalypse but now that he was alone he seemed to be managing just fine, and a whole lot of other things that just didn't make sense. The worst part was that as an avid reader of zombie and post apocalyptic books was that I really wanted to like this story, but no matter how hard I tried I just couldn't.
The one thing I did enjoy reading though was both the author's style with which he wrote, as well as the obvious forethought and imagination that went into describing the world through the eyes of a bear! Every sense was touched upon and done so in such a way that it was quite easy to envision oneself experiencing the world as a bear! For me that was the one saving grace to this story and is the reason I gave it two stars because otherwise, if it were possible, I would have given it zero. Not a "book" I would recommend, but an author I will keep an eye out for based upon incredibly well he described being a bear from the creature's perspective.
