Brian Costello

There's a short profile of Chicago writer Brian Costello in the latest edition of Newcity Chicago.

"In 2002, 2003 and 2004, I would write after I saw music," he says. "I would see The Tyrades or the Ponys or Clone Defects, I'd go to sleep and I'd wake up and write. You still have that spirit in you."

I've already pre-ordered Costello's debut novel, The Enchanters Vs. Sprawlburg Springs, the debut release from the new Chicago independent publisher Featherproof Books. (Order #19!) Based on the first chapter, the book looks like a real hoot.
