NOTE: I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. This review is my honest opinion of the book.
"Jamie Lackey's new collection of speculative fiction stories, A Metal Box Floating Between Stars and Other Stories, will make you think, wonder, and hope. Journey within and away to find love across time, friendly and fearsome aliens, alternate realities, fungal zombies, and more."
This book contains 19 short speculative/SF stories that include everything from family, semi-sentient AI (Fluffy the cleaning bot is absolutely adorable!), odd-ball aliens, space exploration, clones, assassins, alien invasions, zombie fungi, to a whole range of other strange and wonderful combinations and original ideas. The writing is beautiful and concise, the stories original and thought-provoking. The stories contained in this book are also more uplifting and hopeful than many current SF/F stories out there. I enjoyed this book a great deal.
