"One of the best story collections of the past few years." --Booklist, starred review "16 hard-edged pieces that gleam like gems in a mosaic." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Kameron Hurley is a badass." --Annalee Newitz, author of Autonomous When renegade author Kameron Hurley (The Light Brigade; The Stars Are Legion) takes you to the future, be prepared for the unexpected.

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.
