Released: April 12th 2016

When Curtis Brooks starts receiving phone calls from his older brother Wilt, who’s been dead a week, he’s sure it’s to help him find evidence that will lead to a murderer’s arrest. But Wilt claims he wasn’t murdered; his calling, meant to help him adjust, is standard protocol for newly deceased at the Aftermart—a kind of inescapable, ever-expanding Walmart filled with discontinued products.

Wilt’s death ruled a homicide, Curtis embarks on a dangerous plan to find the killer, which soon has him scheming against a billionaire and floundering toward love with his brother’s ex-girlfriend Suzy, all while struggling through high school and his single mom’s poor choices.

Why does Wilt help Curtis win over Suzy, even as he organizes a rebellion at the Aftermart? Who’d wanted him dead? Curtis risks his life to answer these questions, in the process forging a bond with his brother unlike any they’ve ever had.


Two Truths and a Lie with Eric Laster

 Do you remember playing this ice breaker game at school? Basically, you tell someone two truths and a lie about yourself and they have to guess which one is the lie.
1. Two Truths and A Lie about Eric Laster:
a. I did not start writing seriously until I was in my twenties.
b. I would write books and stories even if no one read them.
c. I have an irrational fear of peaches; it has to do with their fuzzy skin. James and the Giant Peach? To me, this is a novel of extreme horror.
Answer (highlight to reveal): Answer (c) is the lie!
2. Two Truths and A Lie about Eric Laster Part 2:
a. I have no gallbladder.
b. I always knew I’d be a writer.
c. I don’t like certain “foods” because of their names alone. For instance: yogurt, eggplant, cottage cheese. I’m sorry, but…gross. The consistency of two of these “foods” doesn’t help.
Answer (highlight to reveal): Answer (b) is the lie! For answer (a), it was removed after I developed pancreatitis—an unexpected condition for a young man, typical sufferers being, as the doctors told me, “fat, fertile, female, and forty.”
3. Two Truths and A Lie about #Static:
a. I conceived of the Aftermart before I knew any part of the overall plot.
b. Its working title was Glitch.
c. The novel grew out of an exercise I gave myself, to write the beginning of a new story every day—just a few paragraphs, never more than a page, before I forced myself to set the work down and move on to something else.
Answer (highlight to reveal): Answer (a) is the lie!


A New Yorker by birth, Eric Laster lives in Los Angeles. After a successful stint as a best-selling ghostwriter, Eric re-launched under his own name with the middle-grade novel Welfy Q.

  1. I think I like mystery because I like the fact that one has to think and follow the clues like some of the characters.

  3. Oh yes, mystery stories do attract me, because you never know what's going to happen. Also, you get that chilling/suspense feeling that I really like. Thanks for the chance! :3

  4. I like mystery stories because there is problem solving involved and more suspense.
