Josh Langston writes books which amuse, anger, enlighten and entertain. He regularly mines history for background material that's little known but reliably fascinating. His plots are complex, interconnected and layered with humor and suspense; his characters are rarely predictable, and even his bad guys tend to be both engaging and diabolical. A graduate of Georgia State University with a degree in journalism, Josh's writing tastes quickly shifted away from reportage. His fiction has been published in a variety of magazines and anthologies, and both his Christmas and Western short story collections have reached the Amazon top 20 for genre fiction. Though he focused on historical fantasy in his first four books, Josh branched out into contemporary thrillers and currently has a half dozen such titles on the market plus another half-dozen short story collections. His latest novel, THE 12,000-YEAR-OLD WHISPER, was released on October 1, 2015. In addition to writing, Josh loves to teach. His classes on fiction writing, memoir, and independent publishing are filled with older adults eager to learn and have their work perused by a pro. His textbook on the craft of fiction, WRITE NAKED!, provides a humorous and easy-to-understand approach to the subject while imparting valuable tips and techniques. A similar volume for memoir writers, THE NAKED TRUTH!, will be released in the near future. Additional titles in the "Work Naked!" series are also planned.Josh and Canadian writer/editor Barbara Galler-Smith, have co-authored four novels. These include the "Druids" trilogy (DRUIDS, CAPTIVES, and WARRIORS) and UNDER SAINT OWAIN'S ROCK, a romantic comedy set in modern day Wales. The Druid series, consisting of three intense historical fantasies, are all set in the first century BC.When he's not writing, Josh is most likely editing, teaching, blogging, or helping his wonderful wife watch their amazing grandkids.*** CAPTIVES reached #3 on the Calgary Herald's Best-seller list for April 17, 2011, three weeks *before* the book's official release! ***

It's a nice jumble. I picked this up because it had a hedgehog on the cover. The best story is "Love Story at Gate 6B". But there are several good ones. Some not so good ones. Still, picked up another book by the same author.
