Autistic Jimmy Kinder used to speak his own brand of Fred Flintstone language, communicate with space aliens, and influence intergalactic politics. Or at least he thought he did. The doctors said it was autism. Eventually Jimmy got better. He grew up. He left home. He was going to have a normal life. But then he found out the doctors didn’t know what they were talking about. Space travel, zombie laborers, interstellar capitalism, Suxi Pirates, Jepps Doll entities, one-eyed monsters and murderous swash-buckling assassins were more than the mere creation of his mind. They were real. They are real. And they have come to get him, because now it’s his turn to save the universe.
This third and final book of the Vampire Outlaw series has been six years in the making. Inspired by the poem I am a cowboy in the boat of Ra by Ishmael Reed, The Loup Garou Kid concludes where Vampire Outlaw began. Either read as a complete set, or stand alone, The Loup Garou Kid is a rare look into the playful creativity that Cemetery Dance Magazine called ‘a real work of literature.’ In the end, it is multiple-award winning author and comic book writer Brian Keene who says, ‘“ Vampire Outlaw of the Milky Way is what would happen if Ray Bradbury and Lin Carter got together to write a space opera. Only Weston Ochse could write something like this. In lesser hands, it would fall apart. Weston is one of the best authors of our generation.’
Scavenger Hunt – the hot new reality TV show that pits four teams against each other on a race around the world.
The show runner, Cynthia Wright, needs this to be the most successful reality show of all time because she is dying of leukemia and this is her last hurrah. To that end, she wants more danger, more sex, more conflict than any show preceding it and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to fulfill that vision, including risking the lives of all involved.
“A thrilling adventure about the most spectacular reality show ever created, and the people who are crazy enough to compete! It’s THE AMAZING RACE brought to you by sadists.”
– Jeff Strand, author of PRESSURE

Gutsy 17-year-old Albert “Shoe” Horn is an apprentice plumber and part-time boxer in England in 1922, but when his mother dies, he finds himself responsible for an abusive, alcoholic father and a younger brother with special needs.
This marvelous novel follows the indomitable Shoe’s day-to-day survival with poetic grit, cynical genius, respect, and deep affection as he navigates a world full of very real characters: the gentle giant McAvy, his slave-driving boss, the Irish louts that resurrect his temper, the tempting ladies who seek him out, his hilarious plumbing clients, and the formidable “Dropper,” who Shoe fears will take away the most true thing in his life, his brother.
Find out for yourself why Stephen King proclaimed “The Dropper avoids sentimentality, but not sentiment; Shoe and his brother Bobby live and breathe” when this novel is published as a Cemetery Dance Publications exclusive next year.
Lake Livingston: August, 1961.
Mark Gaitlin is 15, the son of one of the wealthiest men in Texas, and on the most boring summer vacation of his life. His days are filled with the pomp and circumstance of country club life, while his nights are a parade of one embarrassment after another at the hands of giggling teenage girls.
But the piney woods above Lake Livingston are dark at night, and hold many secrets for an impressionable youngster on the cusp of becoming a man. And one night, after skinny dipping in the lake with a mysterious local girl, Mark Gaitlin’s life takes a crazy turn into the fire and brimstone religion of backwoods snake handlers and abandoned villages haunted by old family secrets. If he can survive the snakes and the ghosts and his own family’s dark history, he just might make it out of the woods alive.
And something else…he just might become a man.
A suicidal nudist strolls into traffic. An eccentric Buddhist claims he can occupy other people’s bodies. All the while, whispers of a new form of entertainment blow through town. Prompted by these strange occurrences, Marty Raft, a not-so-gentle giant, investigates and discovers underground clubs peddling music that induces an out-of-body experience. Marty and a wannabe comedian, Corey, set out to prove these special frequencies are nothing more than a hoax, or at worst, a mass-drugging.
Instead, they uncover a secret with world-ending possibilities.
If you can hear the music, it’s already too late.
