R.I.P Octavia Butler

One of Black America’s great science fiction writers joined the ancestors today. Best known for her amazing novel “Kindred,” which concerned a black woman who travels back in time to the South to save a white man, Butler became the first science fiction writer to win the prestigious McArthur “Genius” Award. Butler’s ability to wed top-shelf creative writing to keen socio-historical insights has been an inspiration to an entire generation of writers and thinkers. Here’s a link to an interview that my man Jelani Cobb did with her some years back: http://www.jelanicobb.com/portfolio/obutler.html
