Prior to recorded history, a small genetic mutation occurred that created a race of humans now found among every civilization in every corner of the globe.

Unrecognizable to the rest of mankind but dependent upon them for survival, this race is known as Mortui; those whose spirits do not sever from their bodies when they die.

As S.P. Cloward reveals in his novel “AfterLife,” they are the source of all “living dead” legends.

At the time of his premature death, Wesley Lohmann discovers he belongs to this select group.

He is recruited by AfterLife, learns what it means to be Mortui, and joins in the impending conflict between two rival organizations; one determined to serve humans and the other focused on the domination and subjection of the living.

S.P. Cloward

As he struggles with new and past relationships and tries to find meaning for his continued existence, Wes discovers within himself the ability and heart to tip the balance in favor of those who want to deal harmoniously with mankind.

Illustration from S.P. Cloward's AfterLife

On his website, S.P. Cloward offers up some very nice illustrations of key scenes in “AfterLife”. Here’s just one:

Seth purposely took the longest route to Millennium Park he could think of to give Rahul more time to enjoy the cold weather. They passed the ice skating rink and went up the steps to the plaza that held one of the city’s most famous tourist attractions, The Bean. Its sleek, quick-silver appearance reflected the city’s skyline, morphing the heights of the nearby buildings into strange shapes. There were a few avid tourists braving the cold to interact with the large bean shaped sculpture. Seth found a bench just outside of the plaza and they sat looking at the impressive, mirrored piece of art.
