"Sean Costello is a master of the poignancy of everyday living. In Here After he tackles a difficult subject with wit and humanity—and a couple of really good scares. It’s a father and son story that will touch your heart."

—Susie Moloney, author of The Dwelling

"Eden's Eyes is the best horror novel I've read since Stephen King's own Pet Sematary. A terrific debut."
—Rave Reviews

"Sean Costello's The Cartoonist is a wonderful blend of horror, psychology, and the power of suggestion that leaves you guessing right up to the very end!"
—The New Jersey Grapevine


"Sean Costello is one of the horror genre's brightest new stars and his third novel, Captain Quad, will only enhance his position."
—Other Realms

Here After marks a return to my supernatural roots, after a brief exploration of the thriller genre with Finders Keepers and Sandman. I'm hoping that fans of the original three horror novels will be pleased.

 As always, people too numerous to mention were involved in the research and advance reading of this novel, and I’d like to thank them again now...you know who you are. Special thanks to Dr. Brent Kennedy for verifying the accuracy and clarity of medical details in the novel, a laborious task at best. Also special thanks to Nathan Abourbih and his colleagues at The Web Architect for creating such a gorgeous website; to Amy Bradley for the great cover art; and to writer Mark Leslie for his invaluable input and encouragement.

While researching this novel, I became aware of the vital role organizations like Child Find play in the process of returning missing children to their families. In honor of that role, I've decided to donate all personal proceeds from the novel to Child Find. It is my sincere hope that other Northerners will come on board to assist this fine institution. Topping the list so far are Nathan Abourbih of the Web Architect, who constructed this website free of charge; Vicki Gilhula, managing editor of the excellent Sudbury Living magazine; Alfred and Louise Boyd of Alfred Boyd Photography; and the lovely and gracious Estelle, proprietor of the quaint Variety 69 on Highway 69. Where appropriate, links to contributors websites will appear on the More Info page.

Here After is available now in trade paperback. Book signings, readings and other events will be posted on this site as dates become available.
