“Filaria is, in its conciseness and its oddly disturbing grace, one of the finest debuts written in the last decade -- in the sff genre or any other genre. For a fast reader, it could be consumed in nearly a breath, but this would be to miss the point...”
Among other great reviews, Publishers Weekly gave the book a starred write up, calling Filaria 'powerful' and 'beautifully written'. His second novel, The Fecund's Melancholy Daughter, also got a starred review from Publishers Weekly and was short-listed for the 2012 CBC Bookie Awards. Brent attended the Clarion SF workshop in 1995. For a few years he lived in Poland with his family but is now back in Canada. His third novel, Head Full of Mountains, was published in 2014 and nominated for a Sunburst award. A collection of short stories is forthcoming. He can be reached through his website, brenthayward.com. By day, he works in the aerospace field.
