“Will make you simultaneously laugh and cringe at the squeamish awkwardness of post-one night stand intimacies…witty…strangely fantastical and familiar.” —Flavorwire

“Rae Bryant’s fiction is smart and sexy and post-feminist and dangerous and akin to doing the tango with a succubus. Do you feel lucky? Part Hannah Tinti, part Kim Addonizio—with enough intense characters, flashy dreams, and edgy visions to entangle your heart and skull for eons. Bite into these thorny stories, before they sink their teeth into you.” —Richard Peabody, Editor Gargoyle Magazine

“If I had to describe Rae Bryant’s collection The Indefinite State of Imaginary Morals in two words, the words would be these: damn impressive.” —Mel Bosworth, Outsider Writers Collective and Press

“Bryant creates a vivid portrayal of what it means to be human, in its gritty glory.” —Robyn Campbell, Weave Magazine

“Addictive; the rawness, messiness, unattractive infection of love that can cause a woman to gnaw off her arm to sneak away from her sleeping lover. It’s no surprise to find, among these stories, a new Wonder Woman, with a whip. Ah, you say: of course.” —Karen Heuler, Author of Journey to Bom Goody, recipient of the O’Henry award.

“Reading Rae Bryant can be a harrowing experience; hers is a harsh world without wrong or right. But as you make your way through, pains and pleasures meet and build, until it’s like drowning in a lake of silver light.” —Ben Loory, Author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day

“The Indefinite State of Imaginary Morals commands attention. Bryant’s observations on the arcana of the mundane—life, sex, a sense of being—are matched only by her ability to render them strange. Alternatively lyrical and minimal, these stories exemplify the capabilities of the literary weird mode. A must read for any student of post-millennial fiction.” —Darin Bradley, Author of Noise

“A distinctive collection that’s imaginative and compelling. These stories show the enormous talent of Rae Bryant beginning to take hold.” —Tim Wendel, author of Castro’s Curveball and High Heat

“Deadpan, visceral, sharply funny.” —Julie Innis

“A new genealogy of morals… a madcap ride through a land of errant desire and lost time.” —Gary Percesepe, BLIP Magazine (formerly Mississippi Review)

“Sweetly erotic without going over the top.” —Jared Randall, Apocryphal Road Code

“Innovative, daring, original writing.” —Kathy Fish, A Peculiar Feeling of Restlessness
