SEAL Team 666 Crossover - Opening Paragraph

People have been begging me for more SEAL Team 666. Some have hinted at the possibilities of a cross-over. I've even had power writers like Jonathan Maberry ask if maybe Joe Ledger and Triple Six might do something together. And why not? It's a popular trilogy. It's cool. It's fun.

Well, finally I can offer you all a fix so you can stop jonesing so much. Really, it's a shame to see you like that in public. Have you no shame?

So, Joe Nassise is editing an anthology called Urban Allies to be published by Harper Voyager sometime early next year. The idea was to create an anthology of stories and partner two writers with their own universes together to create each special story. I've been partnered with the cool-as-hell David Wellington. We decided to cross-over Jack Walker from Triple Six and Laura Caxton, Pennsylvania Vampire Hunter. You can visit him at his website if you click this sentence.

This Be David Wellington
We don't have a title yet, but this will entice you.

And oh yeah, this takes place right after the events in Reign of Evil (SEAL Team 666 Book 3) so if you haven't read the book, don't read this paragraph.

By Weston Ochse and David Wellington

     Grief can take on many forms. Sometimes it’s a granite headstone in a cemetery. Sometimes it’s a shrine by the side of the road. There’s a noble sort of grief in the elderly man sitting alone on a park bench. There’s the respectful grief for a soldier, his boots resting atop his coffin as his unit files by, reverently saluting. Grief can be a source of fuel someone can tap into to accomplish something they wouldn’t have ordinarily been able to accomplish. Grief can actually be a power for good. Or grief can simply be a crazed man wielding a bloody coat hanger, beating the shit out of a ghost hanging on the wall who won’t stop moaning in the voice of his dead girlfriend.

So are you caught up with SEAL Team 666 or David's Vampire Hunter Series? You better be by the time this anthology hits the streets or you're going to feel left behind. (And no, not like Nick Cage in The Rapture)
