It’s funny, suspenseful and resolutely quirky, with a great cast of characters.” - Jack Ketchum, author of The Girl Next Door "SEAL TEAM 666 is like X-Files and Torchwood written by Tom Clancy: ingenious, creepy, and entertaining." - Kevin J. Anderson, #1 international bestselling author of DEATH WARMED OVER“Every story-line is as taut as a gunfighter's nerves and individual scenes pop like firecrackers.” - Peter Straub on SEAL Team 666“Even the supernatural has its own division of terrorist. Thank goodness we have our defenders –SEAL Team 666.” – Eight-time Bram Stoker winner Joe R. Lansdale“Weston Ochse is to horror what Bradbury is to science fiction -- an artist whose craft, stories and voice are so distinct and mesmerizing that you can't help but be enthralled.” - Dani Kollin, Prometheus Award-winning author of The Unincorporated Man'Weston Ochse is a mercurial writer, one of those depressingly talented people who are good at whatever they turn their hand to.' -Conrad Williams, August Derleth and International Horror Guild Award Winner“Weston is one of the best authors of our generation." – Brian Keene, Bram Stoker Award-winning author The Rising and Ghoul"Weston Ochse is perhaps the fiercest and most direct of the latest generation of dark fiction writers. I watched awestruck year by year as the bright candle of his talent grew into a roaring bonfire of brutally honest output, matched only by his deep empathy for the human condition."
