Excerpt from New York Times“No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama bin Laden,” written by a pseudonymous member of that Navy SEAL team mission, has stirred up unintended controversies over its author’s right to disclose the details of the operation; his identity; and any perceived political motives behind its publication. Meanwhile, a fictional counterpoint to that book is deliberately trying to catch hell." (Click link for the entire article, which appeared in the September 1, 2012 print edition)
Excerpt from The Atlantic: "Books about Navy SEALs are selling like crazy, which makes sense, consider how much real-life SEALs have been in the news of late. But some of the titles are just using the special operations point as a jump off point for horror novels, like the terrifically titled Seal Team 666." (Click link for entire article)

Kirkus Review: "Ochse brings both a lively gallows humor to the story and just the right amount of conviction."
Publishers Weekly Review: "Ochse’s background in military intelligence packs this hybrid of military SF and horror (already optioned by MGM) with insider detail and verisimilitude."

Praise for SEAL Team 666:

"Even the supernatural has its own division of terrorist. Thank goodness we have our defenders - SEAL Team 666."—Joe R. Lansdale
"Weston Ochse has always been a wised-up, clued-in, completely trustworthy writer of high-action fiction that deserved a wider audience, and SEAL Team 666 is his breakthrough book. Here, every story-line is as taut as a gunfighter's nerves, and individual scenes pop like firecrackers. I raced through this novel and when it ended, I wanted more."—Peter Straub, New York Times bestselling author of In the Night Room"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
"A wild blend of nail-biting thriller action and out-of-the shadows horror. This is the supernatural thriller at its most dynamic.  Perfect!"—Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of Dead of Night and The King of Plagues

BOOK REVIEWS:

From 2012:

"When you pick up a book called Seal Team 666 you know you’re going to get a genre-blending reading experience that whips up a tornado of tropes that defy categorization—Techno-horror? Military Urban Fantasy? I call it “Supernatural SEAL fiction” and I think it’s terrific." Criminal Element, Kathrine Tomlinson
"Ochse has been around awhile, hitting the Stoker jackpot on his first novel and now the lottery as this effort was recently sold to MGM and will be a monster film sometime soon. A thrilling, fun ride that will not disappoint." Horrorworld, David Simms 
"This is the type of book that you can display with military thrillers on one side and supernatural on the other and have it bridge the two quite well. Highly recommended." Monster Librarian, Dylan Kowalewski

  3. Hi, Weston,
    I heard about SEAL Team 666 and was interested in reading it, but I decided to try out "Border Dogs" first, just to get a taste. I liked BD so much, I have already started ST666. However, I'm kind of a completist when it comes to reading, and I was wondering where BD falls in the ST666 chronology. Does it take place prior to the first book or inbetween the ST666 and Age of Blood?
    Thanks for your time!

    1. Border Dogs is a prequel. The sniper in BD is the one who died in the the first chapter of the first book. I kind of wanted to give him some life. Plus, I wanted to write about Chupacabra.

    2. At this point, I have now read all 3 ST666 stories (Border Dogs twice!) and truly enjoyed them. Can you tell me when you think the next ST666 story might be released? Will your short story in SNAFU be a ST666 adventure?
