Meet Me in the Future: Stories By Kameron Hurley
Rating: 5/5 stars
Genre: Science Fiction, Short Stories
Publisher: Tachyon Publications
Release Date: August 20, 2019
When renegade author Kameron Hurley (The Light Brigade; The Stars Are Legion) takes you to the future, be prepared for the unexpected. Yes, it will be dangerous, frequently brutal, and often devastating. But it’s also savagely funny, deliriously strange, and absolutely brimming with adventure.
In these edgy, unexpected tales, a body-hopping mercenary avenges his pet elephant, and an orphan falls in love with a sentient starship. Fighters ally to power a reality-bending engine, and a swamp-dwelling introvert tries to save the world—from her plague-casting former wife.
So come meet Kameron Hurley in the future. The version she's created here is weirder—and far more hopeful—than you could ever imagine.

So, this is going to be a short review, because I don’t have much to say other than these are fantastic! Go buy this collection.
Her writing is fascinating, and her imagination absolutely captivating. This collection has a good range of stories, some short, some long and all intriguing like you wouldn’t believe. Even weeks after reading them I find myself just thinking about some of her stories.
Overall a great collection, and one that I would recommend to absolutely anyone who loves short stories (and even those who aren’t necessarily big on short fiction.) Definitely a collection that I’ll be purchasing for a reread.
