Exclusive Interview: The Imaginary Corpse Author Tyler Hayes


The idea that our imaginary friends are real is not new. Just ask Big Bird. But the idea that our imaginary friend has, in his retirement, become a detective who lives in a world with other imaginary friends who’ve also been forgotten…well, that’s just crazy enough to work. Hence we have The Imaginary Corpse (paperback, Kindle), a new fantasy mystery tale from writer Tyler Hayes. In the following email interview, Hayes talks about what inspired and influenced this tale of “howdunit,” and why he didn’t give it a cheeky name like Dinotown.
