Read full description of the books Filaria:
Four inhabitants of a crumbling world:a drug-addled boy, living in dank recesses, sets out in an ancient car to find his ex, who has mysteriously vanished overnight; a privileged girl, obsessed with the past, and exiled by her esteemed father, learns more about her long-vanished ancestors than she ever could have wished for; an old man, on his hundredth birthday, deserts his quiet post as an elevator operator, climbing the great shaft in hopes of seeing the fabled topmost level before he dies; and a fisherman, seeking answers to why his once-vibrant wife is now chronically ailing and wasting away, begins a quest to find and confront the god of all gods.

"Hayward's debut [Filaria] is a powerful, beautifully-written dystopian tale concerning four inhabitants of a gigantic but dying artificial habitat... With well-developed characters and four strong plotlines told through alternating chapters, Hayward delivers a fulfilling read.
– Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"[Brent Hayward]'s second novel [The Fecund's Melancholy Daughter] combines elegant writing with moral ambiguity and an impressive array of grotesque characters."
"Toronto’s Brent Hayward has a knack for creating incredibly lush alternative worlds and mythologies, and Head Full of Mountains may be his most complex and demanding work yet. . . . [O]ne of the more different and difficult SF novels of the year, but also one of the most rewarding."
- The Toronto Star
