My name is Joshua Kurtz and I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I’ve always enjoyed writing – I wrote for my high school and college newspapers and authored a fantasy novel, among other endeavors. I had limited short story writing experience until a late schedule adjustment before my final undergraduate term led me to sign up for a writing class on them. It was one of the greatest classes I ever took, and I’ve continued writing short stories since. Olbers’ Paradox: A Book of Short Stories is my first published book.
