"If China Mieville, Neil Gaiman and Hunter S. Thompson had a menage a trois, Dead Boys would be the lovechild. A cracking book." --Jay Kristoff, author of Stormdancer "A macabre, madcap picaresque full of fast-talking corpses and philosophical skeletons. Squailia's super-charged prose swings from bone-crunching action to meditations on the meaning of life and the mysteries of death. It's an exuberant mashup." --Brendan Mathews, author of The World of Tomorrow "Exquisite worldbuilding alongside a mix of humor and philosophy ... This underworld is a fascinating city." --Publishers Weekly "If Neil Gaiman wrote an episode of Deadwood without the swearing and all the characters were already dead, it might read a little like this. I was utterly charmed." --Robin Riopelle, author of Deadroads "A cheeky read and full of the quirky characters that keep my heart beating, Dead Boys gave me the fantastical journey I've been dying (har) to read." --Women Write About Comics
