I am proud to announce that the hype machine has been turned on for my first ever short story collection. This went out on the Dark Regions Newsletter today:

 

Available for preorder in May is a best-of collection from Weston Ochse with an introduction from Joe R. Lansdale and cover artwork by Vincent Chong!

 

Multiplex Fandango is subtitled “A Weston Ochse Reader” for good reason. This collection contains a comprehensive representation of short fiction and novellas by the Bram Stoker award winner and Pushcart Prize nominee, including his recent powerful Stoker finalist short story, “The Crossing Of Aldo Rey” and his brilliant Stoker finalist novella, Redemption Roadshow, as well as acclaimed favorites, “Catfish Gods” and “Big Rock Candy Mountain”. Also included in this omnibus volume of sixteen short stories and novellas are six original new works of short fiction written especially for this collection including such future classics as “Tarzan Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”, “Low Men Weeping”, and the stunning, “City Of Joy”.

 

 

“This is a book that could almost have been written for me.”

Multiplex Fandango is, as prominent author Joe R. Lansdale notes in his Introduction,

“…about to burst onto the scene like a comet streaking across the sky, entering our atmosphere, leaving in its smoking wake skywriting from its tail that says: WES OCHSE, HE’S GOOD…The bottom line is this. Wes takes very odd things and finds their connections; his juxtapositions are amazing and original and just the sort of thing I like. This is a book that could almost have been written for me. I can’t give it higher compliment than that.”

Celebrated author Edward Lee has this to say of Weston Ochse:

“Make way for a new powerhouse on the block. Hard work and formidable skills have already shot-gunned Ochse to the front of the genre’s exciting new pack of writers. With creative brawn, brains, and balls, the guy’s locked, loaded, and switched to full-auto, blazing away with his unique and original brand of modern horror, one of the few new writers, I’d say, who will help re-define the field for the future.”
