Praise for The Imaginary Corpse

"A wholly original take on the lands of make-believe from a captivating new voice in the genre. Hayes takes the reader on a journey to the heart of themselves, reminding them of all that was lost and all that can never be forgotten. A book as comforting and as cathartic as your first knocked-out tooth."
– Meg Elison, Philip K. Dick Award-winning author of The Book of the Unnamed Midwife

"Hayes nails that tone in the midst of what may be 2019’s weirdest premise"
– B&N Sci Fi & Fantasy Blog

“It’s as if Pixar’s Inside Out mugged Toy Story in a surrealist Raymond Chandler novel. Weird, fun, scary, and a great mystery to boot. Hayes sticks the landing.”
—Jennifer Brozek, Author of Never Let Me Sleep and The Last Days of Salton Academy

"Hayes has crafted the most unlikely formula and makes it sing. The Imaginary Corpse is inventive, fun, and touching, in the most unexpected way. The world – real and imaginary – needs more triceratops detectives." 
– Mike Chen, author of Here and Now and Then

"This is detective noir shot through with technicolor playfulness the likes of which I haven't seen since Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It's pure imagination on multiple axes – with a ton of heart."
– Alex Wells, author of Hunger Makes the Wolf

"I heartily recommend The Imaginary Corpse to any reader seeking a delightfully different book."
– Wendy Trimboli, author of The Resurrectionist of Caligo
