ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Weston Ochse is a former intelligence officer and special operations soldier who has engaged enemy combatants, terrorists, narco smugglers, and human traffickers. His personal war stories include performing humanitarian operations over Bangladesh, being deployed to Afghanistan, and a near miss being cannibalized in Papua New Guinea. His fiction and non-fiction has been praised by USA Today, The Atlantic, The New York Post, The Financial Times of London, and Publishers Weekly. The American Library Association labeled him one of the Major Horror Authors of the 21st Century. His work has also won the Bram Stoker Award, been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, and won multiple New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards. A writer of more than 26 books in multiple genres, his military supernatural series SEAL Team 666 has been optioned to be a movie starring Dwayne Johnson. His military sci fi series, which starts with Grunt Life, has been praised for its PTSD-positive depiction of soldiers at peace and at war. Weston likes to be called a chaotic good paladin and challenges anyone to disagree. After all, no one can really stand a goody two-shoes lawful good character. They can be so annoying. It's so much more fun to be chaotic, even when you're striving to save the world. You can argue with him about this and other things online at Living Dangerously or on Facebook at Badasswriter.

Horror and Science Fiction in Tucson, Arizona

Reactions:  
Where are you going to be this weekend? Are you going to be in the East Coast. Has it snowed there? Have you had to de-ice the car? Do you know what slush means?

If you lived in Arizona you could have 70-80 degree weather right now. You could walk outside dressed in a T-shirt. You could swim in the pool.

You could also spend a weekend at the Best Little Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror Convention in Arizona-- TUSCON!  This weekend is TusCon 38. Previous GoHs include Theodore Sturgeon, Vernor Vinge, Robert Bloch, Karl Edward Wagner, Diana Gabaldon, John Ringo, Laurell K. Hamilton, Weston Ochse, Stephen R. Donaldson, Tim Powers, Jim Butcher and Shannon K. Butcher, to name just a few.  Begun in 1974, TusCon has a rich history of supporting the interests of fans, authors, artists, librarians, booksellers and gamers in Tucson, and throughout the Southwest
.
 
I'll be on several panels, reading from MULTIPLEX FANDANGO, as well as just hanging out. Come out and see us and have a great time.
