About this author

Weston has won the Bram Stoker Award for first novel and been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. His work has appeared in magazines, comic books, anthologies and how-to guides.

Grunt Life came out and immediately went into a second printing. So happy that people Grok my style of Military SF. Now, nine days into the sequel, Grunt Traitor, I'm doing things to planet earth no one should ever be allowed to. It's galactically evil, but the logical outcome if we will are ever unfortunate to be invaded and terraformed.

A new review surfaced of Grunt Life from Hugo Award-nomin... Read more of this blog post »

“The fact is that Superman should be fat. He should be a lard-assed superhero with flabby arms, a beer gut, and soft muscles.
...when Superman bench-presses a Cadillac, he doesn't even break a sweat. It's like picking up a bag of feathers. Would Batman be buff if he bench-pressed feathers? Because that's essentially what Superman does every day.”
Weston Ochse, SEAL Team 666

“Being spanked and tickled by Mr. T while he chants ‘Them bats is smart, they use radar, fool!’ is just fucking scary.”
Weston Ochse, Scary Rednecks and Other Inbred Horrors

“Interspersed within the blonde hairs were traitorous slivers of gray.”
Weston Ochse, Velvet Dogma
