Weston Ochse and Gemma Files


July 28, 2017 by Laird

I had the opportunity to hang out with Gemma and Weston last weekend at Necon 37. Gemma Files is simply brilliant. I’d read her collection We Will All Go Down Together in PDF, but finally picked up the softcover from Chizine. Peak Files–dark, mysterious, and gorgeously written. She’s done the work since the 1990s and is only getting stronger.

Weston Ochse is another writer who has labored long and faithfully in the genre trenches. His work covers a spectrum from acid-trip-worthy short fiction (I highly recommend Multiplex Fandango) to commercial military-oriented horror such as Seal Team 666 which may soon be adapted as a blockbuster film.

A special note regarding Weston–he and his wife, author Yvonne Navarro, rescue at risk Great Danes. Weston and I talked about his and Yvonne’s experiences taking care of big dogs and our mutual love of dogs in general. That conversation was among the highlights of my trip to Rhode Island.
