Form rejection on full via assistant Jon.
Time from query to partial--about 2 weeks
Time from partial to full request--about 2 weeks
Three months considering full.
Good turnaround times, which, except for the form reject, indicates he'd be a conscientious person to work with. Pity he didn't fall in love with the book. :)

Website says 'Josh responds to all email queries, which should include a pitch letter and the FIRST five (or so) pages of the manuscript. Silence does not mean a pass, it just means the queue is long. Please do NOT send queries by mail—they will not be answered.'
EQ: 9/13
Re-queried: 10/19 (what the heck - seems such a good match!)
Russian historical
Considering he tweeted: ' looking for ...an adult historical novel from an unusual era/place...' AND he says he replies to all queries AND I've been having problems getting messages that use the Godaddy server, I have queried again (11/15)
