Pseudonym of UK author Laura Wilson (1964- ), who under her own name has published nonfiction as well as the nonfantastic DI Stratton historical thriller series, set in 1950s London [the sequence is not listed below]. Costello is of sf interest for the Young Adult novel Monochrome (2022), set in a Near Future Dystopian world afflicted by industrial Pollution, whose initial effect is to impose universal colour-blindness. Any expectation that Disasters are profit sources in a late capitalist culture may be confirmed by the unpacking of this tale. [JC]
