Joseph Mitchell, author of Shard Mountain, is a lifelong fan of science fiction, fantasy, and horror stories, both books and movies. A long-time computer geek and tabletop role-playing gamer, his hobbies include computer animation and first-person-shooter level design. A reclusive hermit who lives a boring life, existing almost entirely in cyberspace. Currently, he lives in northeastern Pennsylvania with his wife, two cats, and a dog, spending most of his free time in front of a computer working on various projects. Shard Mountain is his first novel.


A huge mega-interview featuring seven authors who write about the end of the world, myself included. I really like doing these kinds of interviews, and reading about other authors who write the sort of books I love.

I really enjoyed this book. it's similar to Stephen King's 'Under the Dome', which I also loved, but this one is quicker and more focused because it doesn't follow so many characters. It's also much darker (duh) than 'Under the Dome'. It reminded me ...more

I really enjoyed this, and look forward to reading the next book in the series. The characters, both good and bad, were interesting and memorable. I hope the last thing Velixar said was true.
Joseph Mitchell is now following John Evans and Stephen King

Ed Rambeau Check out the Customer Reviews on on the bottom of the page of the link below, Joseph.

message 10: by Ed

Ed Rambeau No, it's far from a gay romance. It's about a handsome male model whose family gets involved in a a very complex series of murders, which turns out to be an ironic situation for all. Completely heterosexual. LOL.

message 9: by Ed

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Joseph. You seem like an interesting person, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed

Gigi Hi Joseph! Thanks for the friendship! I can't wait to hear what you think of The Passage. I have that book on my TBR.

Have a great weekend.

Joseph Mitchell Thanks DeAnna, I'm having computer problems right now, but I'm determined to get through to the end of NaNoWriMo one way or another!

DeAnna Hi, Joseph --

Best of luck with NaNoWriMo!

Hopefully I'll be able to find a copy of your book at the library-I'm not usually into that stuff, but it looks interesting.
haha, HG is one amazing book, and World War Z has been on my tbr list for awhile, but thanks for the suggestions.

Andrez wow, that was one original message
