J. Manfred Weichsel
Manfred Weichsel writes satires that fuse adventure, horror, science fiction, and fantasy into some of the most original transgressive literature being published today.
Weichsel began writing short fiction in 2016 with stories that appeared in some of the biggest titles of the new pulp movement, such as Cirsova Magazine and the Planetary Anthology series.
When the pandemic hit, Weichsel was suddenly jobless, but—thanks to government handouts—making more than he had been when working. He decided to treat his situation as an opportunity, and began writing longer works and learning how to self-publish.
Now a fiercely independent author, J. Manfred Weichsel aims to fulfill the promise of self publishing with works ungoverned by the constraints of traditional publishing houses and the inhibitions of polite society.
Loved by some and hated by others, Weichsel’s funny, unconventional, often grotesque books inhabit a unique space in American literature and will be read, talked about, and debated for generations to come.
