Octavia Butler, Rest In Peace

"I'm comfortably asocial — a hermit in the middle of a large city, a pessimist if I'm not careful, a feminist, a Black, a former Baptist, an oil-and-water combination of ambition, laziness, insecurity, certainty and drive."

Octavia Butler, June 22, 1947 - February 25, 2006

"In black speculative fiction, we are a tiny family and Octavia Butler was our matriarch. So we just lost our mother, our grandmother." Tananarive Due
