(1973-    ) US author who sometimes writes under his full name Joshua Rountree, and who began to publish work of genre interest with "Fool's Tile" in Glyph for 15 December 2002. Much of his early work was assembled as Can't Buy Me Faded Love (coll 2007), with several tales placing various popular singer-songwriters and rock'n'roll performers into Alternate History worlds, rather after the fashion of Howard Waldrop, who introduced this volume. His second collection, Fantastic Americana (coll 2021), widens the range of his gonzo transformations of the American story (see Fantastika). A novel, Alamo Rising (2013), posits a Zombie Invasion of Texas lead by a resurrected Moctezuma, narrated within a Steampunk Western frame; The Legend of Charlie Fish (2023), focusing on the Great Storm of Galveston in 1900, dips from the same cauldron of story.
