About this title

From Booklist:

For a large portion of his life, Uncle River has lived as a hermit in the American Southwest, a milieu that recurs often in his unusual short fiction. As editor Stanley Schmidt observes in the volume’s introduction, River’s self-imposed isolation has undeniably nourished his fertile imagination to yield dreamlike tales that range widely across the speculative fiction universe. “The Dashing About Flying Box People” regards “flying box” human space explorers from the viewpoint of apparently primitive extraterrestrials whose planet they’ve landed on and exposes the humans’ arrogance and xenophobia. The title story follows an environmentalist doing a backwoods tadpole census into the remote cabin of an elderly, government-bashing recluse, who may or may not be a ghost. Other pieces recount a visit from telepathic aliens to rural New Mexico and the rambling adventures of a self-aware military saber. Although many of the stories are more mainstream than speculative fiction, all share River’s penchant for letting his quirky creativity guide each tale to its often surprising denouement, with mostly engaging results. --Carl Hays
