I ‘discovered’ Kameron Hurley after reading the profoundly good The Stars are Legion. When her new novel The Light Brigade came out, I had to have it and was lucky enough to write a brief review of it for the Tulsa Book Review.
There is no meaningful science fiction being written today not taking on the issues and anxieties of our contemporary culture. Perhaps one of the best writers out there able to capture not just the political but personal tensions is Kameron Hurley, who continues to give readers stunning work with her latest The Light Brigade. In it, readers are confronted with the psychological effects of war, politics of citizenship, the cruelty of capitalism, and the stubborn will of the individual to survive and be free.
