Author of the Month: Octavia E. Butler
Our Author of the Month for February is the American science fiction writer Octavia E. Butler.
In her many, sometimes interlocking works Butler asks questions about race, gender and hierarchy in startling ways, and offers equally startling versions of possible futures, often dystopian, that are uncannily like the present. This is extraordinary writing, written against the grain of gender and race prejudice, and against the grain of Butler’s own persistent writer’s block.
Start with her masterpieceKindred. We’re next to certain you won’t stop there.
