“I want readers to enjoy it and even be entertained by my attempts at humor and terror. I hope they think it’s weird and quirky but also honest and heartfelt,” said Boston College graduate Sean Patrick Byrne in a Q&A about his debut novel, The Psychopomps (Apprentice House Press, 2022). His book tells the story of 29-year-old Janzen Hakkinen who is ready to end his life, but instead is abducted and held with others in a supposedly abandoned building. The building’s owner “has collected a group of men and women who spend their days combating their past, fearing the present violence of a maniac and weighing the ultimate choice of how their stay together will end.” A former teacher, Byrne earned a bachelor’s degree from BC in 2000.
