Meet Me in the Future: Stories by Kameron Hurley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I'm generally not that big into short stories and by way of Hurley's introduction, I might have expected her to do a so-so job with these... but Hurley lies. The writer's talents are equal across novels and short fiction. Sorry, Hurley, you're good! lol
Indeed, most of these stories are pretty amazing, delving not only into her Nyx fiction and Legion fiction and even Light Brigade, but this collection has a ton of stories that kicked me hard from a different world altogether. The only other series I haven't read is the Worldbreaker Saga and I'm honestly at a loss as to guess whether the other set of related stories revolving people jumping corpses is related to that or whether this is a taste of a brand new series to come.
If it is, I'm TOTALLY DOWN FOR IT.
Hey! Hey! But what about THIS short story collection? Is it GOOD?
Sorry? Didn't I say?
It's totally engrossing. :) Taken on its own without knowing any of the other novels, it completely works and showcases so much fungal growth, corpse making, body-horror, sexual-orientation-swapping, space-opera, disease-ridden, dog-loving joy as anyone could possibly want. And the worldbuilding is always extremely intense. :)
I will get around to her other novels, but in the meantime, I am on auto-read for anything new that Hurley throws at us. Eagerly.
