So You Want to Be a Robot
A. Merc Rustad (Lethe)
Swaying freely between science fiction and fantasy, diverse in setting and tone, this debut collection by prolific short story author Rustad is creative and often whimsical. An element of queerness enhances many of the stories, always delivered as unobtrusively and naturally as hair color. Each piece in this unmissable collection shimmers with bright explorations of love, loss, and the quest for hope.
