Manhattan Book Review: Meet Me in the Future by Kameron Hurley

My review of Kameron Hurley’s short story collection Meet Me in the Future is up at the Manhattan Book Review.

As always, two themes dominate Hurley’s stories—war and the body. In each of the tales, we encounter individuals having to make deeply intimate and emotional choices whose immediacy always revolves around some existential threat to themselves as well as the world they are immersed in. Readers do more than sympathize with these characters; they are drawn into their inner lives in a profoundly empathetic manner coming to realize ‘There was no greater sin than touching a piece of a world that wasn’t yours.’
